Internships and fellowships

One way we expand the manpower at Cabrini Connections, Tutor/Mentor Connection is through volunteers. Another is through internships. Here are some places where you can learn how interns are helping us.

Bradley Troast, NU Public Interest Program Fellow. See story on NU web site. Read his blog.

Jordan Merlo, Loyola University Chicago intern. Follow her blog.

Joe Piaskowy, a graduate student at Northwestern, and former Cabrini Connections video club volunteer, created this story about the Cabrini Connections art club for a class project.

Learn about other interns from IIT, University of Michigan, Hong Kong Baptist and more.

While these articles show how interns from various universities work directly from our office in Chicago, this DePaul University blog illustrates how students can support the goals of the Tutor/Mentor Connection as part of a class project. We'd like to see this duplicated in many places.

While these volunteer provide tremendous talent, we still need to find donations to pay the rent and other expenses of operating, so we can provide this service opportunity. Can you help with a holiday donation?
