One hope of the Tutor/Mentor Connection in hosting this forum is that groups in different cities and countries would use their own web sites to aggregate a list of links to other  youth serving organizations in their own cities/countries so that what we do here spreads help throughout a country and connects more organizations to each other. Through this we hope to attract attention of philanthropists who might not want to support one or two small organizations.


Are you familiar withCatalytic Communities, which is located in Brazil?

We also work with Ciranda NGO and British Council. Both works on promoting children rigths and doing activities on EduComunication.

What other youth groups are you working with in Brazil?  Are you operating from a specific city?

How was your visit to the Boys & Girls Club? Are you encouraging people from these programs to join this group on Ning.com?

The link to the blog post about Casa Aztlan is here.

Can you also post this in English? The photos of the art done at Casa Aztlan are great.

Thank you Daniel. There's a new post, about the last week visit at Casa Aztlan: http://chicacobraziltmconnection.ning.com/profiles/blog/show?id=2069831%3ABlogPost%3A334. The first one in portuguese, to spread the news to the brazilian media and also to entroduce them to the work of Cabrini Connections. Yesterday I was in the Southwest Chicago, for visiting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago Stowe Club.

Thanks for setting up this group. As you post stories about the programs you visit in Chicago, encourage people to discuss what you are learning in this group. Hopefully this can attract people from other groups, and other cities.
