North Chicago Community Partners

North Chicago Community Partners (NCCP) was formed in 2008 in direct response to the lack of outside support for academic challenges facing the children of this community. Since then, NCCP has forged a deep and thoughtful district-wide partnership with Community Unit School District 187 (CUSD 187) and currently plays a multitude of roles. NCCP designs and implements programming, but also serves as a facilitator, a coordinator, a matchmaker and a highly regarded strategic partner to the district. It is our privilege to work alongside CUSD 187 and to mobilize the broader community so all children receive the quality education they deserve. We hope you will consider joining us in this important work. Visit for more information.

NCCP is continuing to serve students and teachers in North Chicago during Covid-19.
