Walk the Talk. Accountability.

The video below was created by Nicola Avery, who lives in the United Kingdom. We met through a blog written about the Tutor/Mentor Connection by George Siemmens. Nicola has been spending time learning about the T/MC by browsing our web sites.

This image is the home page of the T/MC OHATS site that Nicola is talking about in the video. She is sharing this information with her own network in the UK. She created the video to help them understand how we're trying to document actions that would lead to our goal of helping more kids and volunteers connect in well organized, mentor-rich, programs.

While the video is a useful tool, you can learn more about OHATS here. What's really important is how this demonstrates how people from any part of the world can give time, talent and/or dollars to help T/MC do its work in Chicago, so they can borrow the ideas and use then where they are.

Over the next couple of weeks I'll be writing articles showing how the past decade has impacted Cabrini Connections, Tutor/Mentor Connection and what we have accomplished despite the challenges. If you review this OHATS section you'll see charts that show actions we've taken each year since 2000 to achieve our mission.

I hope you'll recognize that if you invest in T/MC and increase the resources we have for the next 10 years, we can multiply the impact of what we're doing.
