I encourage you to read the article Chris Warren wrote about how tutor/mentor programs expand the social capital for kids in high poverty areas. Chris is a June 2008 graduate of Northwestern University, and is working this year with Cabrini Connections, Tutor/Mentor Connection as a Public Interest Fellow. He is connected to Cabrini Green teens and our volunteers because of Cabrini Connections. And using his networking and writing skills, he is connecting other people with our program and these teens.
This is an active process that continues to grow larger, creating a universe of support where previously there was too little.
