Tutor/Mentor Programs in Chicago

I encourage you to read the introductions Nicole White of the Tutor/Mentor Connection has written about ABC Chicago Youth Centers, Girls on the Run, Casa Central, 826 CHI and Erie Neighborhood House.

This illustrates the diversity of volunteer-based tutoring and mentoring in Chicago. These are just a few of the 266 organizations we have in the Chicago Program Locator database.

They all need a constant flow of operating dollars, as does Cabrini Connections, which is operated by the Tutor/Mentor Connection.

That's why we need leadership strategies from industry, faith groups, universities and professional groups that encourage on-going giving and volunteering to tutor/mentor programs in the different neighborhoods of Chicago.

Help if you can. This is not an April Fools Joke. This is a real need.
