Why support this event:
The Artis Yancey HBCU tour started in 2013 with the passion and determination of Supervisor Patricia Jones with the full support of the Board of Trustees. Her purpose was to encourage students to pursue goals and not to settle for anything less than what they desire. Investing in our youth is an initiative that is crucial to the success of Waukegan Township’s future.
The HBCU Tour takes students ranging from 9th-12th grades on a bus trip during spring break to visit and tour colleges and universities. This tour includes visits to local museums and historical sites to round out their experience.
According to Waukegan Township, statistics show that the Northshore area only has a 75% graduation rate compared to 87% statewide. According to counselors and teachers, only 30% of those graduating in the district go on to a post-secondary educational institution. Waukegan Township and its partners want to enhance the opportunities for those wishing to attend a college or university after high school. Read more
