Hi Michael. Thanks for joining the group. As you browse around and begin to tell the story of what the Tutor/Mentor Connection and Cabrini Connections are trying to accomplish, I hope you'll also connect with the others who are part of this group, and encourage them to take more active roles in sharing information, and working together to expand the resources we each need to operate.
