  • The Waukegan - Youth Mentorship Program
  • How to Become a Mentor
  • Why Mentoring Waukegan Youth is Important.

Catholic Charities will be promoting the upcoming OPEN HOUSE for the Youth Mentorship Program on May 25th from 5:30pm -7pm at the Catholic Charities office 671 S. Lewis Ave, Waukegan. If you're able to attend, please contact Beth at 847-782-4224 or Go to the CLULC Events page for more information.
