My Dreams are my Reality

Today, I read Dan's blog post. So I can understand T/M connection & Cabrini Connections activities. I think these activities are very effective to other people.

Moving Forward

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

William T. Grant Foundation 2009 Annual Report

I encourage bloggers who are writing for the T/MC to read the 2009 president's essay and others that are posted on this Foundation page.

Update on volunteering

Yesterday I had some free time so I went into the center to make some more calls to Chicago tutor/mentor organizations. I invited them to the conference later this month and was pleased to see that a lot of them were already aware and considering attending already. It's been great to talk to like-minded people who are passionate about helping children, and the the feedback I've been getting from the organizations has been equally as wonderful.
