Collective Actions - New T/MC Video

Below is a new video that I've posted on YouTube. It shows how Cabrini Connections connects many people in a long-term effort intended to help 7th graders joining us in one year be finishing high school six years later and be in jobs and careers eight or more years later. It also shows how the Tutor/Mentor Connection is trying to build leadership support that would help Cabrini Connections and all other tutor/mentor programs in Chicago have the resources needed to do this work more effectively.

This video is rough. I'm not a professional. I'll get better as I practice. However, these could be much better if volunteers from a college, high school, advertising agency or some other groups were to adopt T/MC as a partner and create videos like this on an on-going basis as their own leadership effort.

We also could do this better if philanthropic investors/benefactors were to look at these and see how much more impact we might have if they were helping build the organizational capacity of Cabrini Connections, Tutor/Mentor Connection to do this work, and to sustain it for the next 20 years....beyond when I'm still here to be the leader.

If you'd like to connect with us call 312-492-9614 or plan to participate in the next Tutor/Mentor Conference, being held on May 19 and 20 at Victory Apostolic Church in Matteson, Il.
