The mission of YCC, Inc. is to provide development services to youth and young adults so that they can become productive citizens, working, participating and living in Lake County, Illinois.

Description

YCC AmeriCorps and YCC YouthBuild Programs share the same development components of education, counseling, life/job skills development, leadership development and graduate follow up services. These programs each have distinct work experience components that include building affordable housing, environmental/safety training or job readiness depending on which component the young adults participate in.
