Tutor/Mentor Dinner Celebrates work of parents, volunteers, students and staff

This map shows the location of the Cabrini Connections tutor/mentor program, which serve 7th to 12th grade teens living in the Cabrini Green area of Chicago. I encourage you to read Mike's article on the Mapping for Justice blog for a hear-warming recap of the event.

Our Korean student interns have created a flash presention showing the dinner. You can see it here.

As you read the article, or look at the flash presentation, ask yourself "What can I or my company, or church, or college, do to help make programs like this available to more inner city kids, in Chicago, or in another city?"

Or, "What can you do to help Cabrini Connections continue its own program?"

Take a look at the YouTube video created by our interns from Korea. It illustrates how we, connect tutor/mentor programs from many places with each other, in an effort to strengthen programs in multiple locations.

If you tell people in your own network to read this blog, or visit the sites I've pointed to, you take on the leader and network-builder role that is essential for making more and better tutor/mentor programs available in more places.
