Reflections of Northwestern University Fellowship

I encourage you to read Bradley Troast's one year reflection article, showing what he has learned from the year he has been with Cabrini Connections, Tutor/Mentor Connection.

Our goal is that many adults, young and old, go through this process of learning and reflection, and that they continue to stay involved for many years. I've been involved in leading a tutor/mentor program for 35 consecutive years. That's what gives me the perspective, and the passion, that I bring to this work.

This animation shows how volunteers and staff who stay involved in a tutor/mentor program for multiple years grow in their understanding, and in how they serve as leaders, to expand the number who get involved.

We need benefactors who understand the value, and the potential, of a network of leaders with this depth of experience, who will provide the operating dollars at Cabrini Connections, and many other programs, to enable this.
