Setting Goals Early = More Goals Accomplished

As many of you know, I finished volunteering this year at Cabrini Connections as a blogger and have moved on to work for the YWCA Metropolitan Chicago office as an intern in the Goverment Relations department. Not only will this opportunity help me to expand my knowledge of policy analysis on various different issues affecting women and youth, it has also helped me to grow in the area of goal-setting, which is crucial to on-going success.

As a component to my internship, I'm…

Moving Forward

These past 5 months have rushed by, haven't they?



My time here at Cabrini has taught me so much about networking, strategic planning, and blogging activism. At Cabrini, I was able to reconnect with the blogosphere through social networking and writing about my adventures here at the center and how they relate to different social issues affecting youth in Chicago. As I move forward from Cabrini Connections, I'm taking with me new ways to analyze information in order to create plans of… Continue

Tapping Into the Volunteer Spirit



Our society is built on a economic system in which in order for there to be the success of some, the displacement and marginalization of others is often required. We are taught from adolescence what it means to produce and consume in an open market, and thus we must work for every dollar that we obtain. For most people, just working to pay the bills brings enough trials on its own, let alone thinking of how to help…

Reflections on Performance, Youth Violence, and Media Representation



This past Tuesday night, I co-stared in Loyola University’s production of 8 Women, an eclectic performance by women of color as part of the celebration for Women’s History Month. 8 Women was created by Loyola's women students, faculty and staff in order to provide an avenue for all women and those who identify as women to examine various forms of femininities and gender related subjects by examining our personal…

Hi E.

I did not know you started a College Zone Blog. Thanks. It looks great. Ask Bradley to add it as a link to the Cabrini Blog and the Cabrini Connections web site.

Wow! I was just reading through some of your blogs on here. I don't know if it would be possible or not, but I would like to have some of my staff come out and visit your site to get a glimpse of what you do out there. I think it is important for professional development to get a broader perspective of how other programs are operating. Perhaps we could even act as volunteers for that day. Please let me know if this is a possibility.
Thank you.

Hello. Firman Community Services is an Non profit organization and under our umbrella we have a plethora of different programs. L.E.A.P (learning Enrichment Action Program) is an afterschool tutor/mentoring program that serves children in two southside Chicago Public Schools. We do homework help, ISAT preparation and regular reading and math learning activities with the mission to get the students up to their grade level. We also do enrichment activities in other subjects such as science, history, spanish, social studies, and physical education.
Please, tell me more about Cabrini Connections and what you do their as an intern.

Hi E. Peter and Kudo are working to animate the graphics shown in this Collaboration Goals essay. I hope you'll write about the "collaboration goals" on your blog and help them and others understand the role individuals and organizations can take to help non profits be available in all of the places they need to be.

At the same time, I've asked them to develop a voice track to the animation they are creating, similar to the one in this project.


Can you help them with this, and possibly be the voice when this gets recorded?

Hey. I'm glad that there will be another intern around. What days will you be at Cabrini?
