It all starts with September - it was the beginning of a magical year of exploration and meeting people you might never otherwise cross paths with… and many of those relationships evolved into lifelong friendships!

But it doesn't end there. Every month, you gathered together to experience all that you "never knew". We all have our stories of our Signature Program Days- the laughs, the learning, the challenges - and of course, ensuring nobody got left behind in the bathroom! Since 1986, we have over 1,000 Signature graduates making a difference in the social, economic and civic excellence of Lake County.

We need your support now to ensure we offer all youth in our community the same exceptional opportunities for our middle school and high school students. Studies show that civic engagement is a powerful retention tool, and leadership programs like ours can improve educational outcomes and can be a catalyst for change.

YOU will make a difference! Tuition for our Junior and Youth Academy covers only 30% of the program costs. Please consider a gift that will allow us to sustain these programs at affordable rates for all students.

Plus, your 100% tax-deductible gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $10,000, thanks to The Lubrizol Corporation and Pacesetter Circle Donors who have committed to match up to the first $10,000 in donations to support our youth programs!
