On behalf of the Board of Directors and members of the Coalición Latinos Unidos de Lake County (CLULC), I would like to welcome and thank you for your interest in our organization. Serving our community since 1994, CLULC is a 501c3 non for profit, non-partisan organization founded by a group of Latino professionals focused on improving the quality of life of the Latino Community in Lake County.

Throughout our history, CLULC has been able to reach and collaborate with a large number of organizations and individuals across the county. We are also proud of the support we have been able to provide Latino students in our community through our Scholarship Fund. The strong connections we have developed and the dedication and support of our members is key in allowing us to strengthen our impact through education, professional networking and accessibility of services.

If you are interested in supporting our mission and joining this unique organization, please complete the membership application found on our Membership page. As a member, you are given information about our monthly meetings, the opportunity to post information on services and events on our website and social networking sites at any time and free of charge. You will also have access to the Latino Coalition’s networking connections and other exclusive benefits. We are committed to sustaining initiatives that benefit our community.

Once again, I thank you for your interest and hope to see you at our next monthly meeting.

Topic: The City of North Chicago's "My Brother's Keeper Challenge"(MBK) Initiative

The "My Brother's Keeper" Community Challenge encourages communities (cities, rural municipalities, and tribal nations) to implement a coherent cradle-to-college-and-career strategy for improving the life outcomes of all young people to ensure that they can reach their full potential, regardless of who they are, where they come from, or the circumstances into which they are born. Nearly 200 mayors, tribal leaders, and county executives across 43 states and the District of Columbia have accepted the MBK Community Challenge. Amy Whitis, Community Information Coordinator, City of North Chicago, will describe and discuss the MBK Initiative.
