Another is from movie Precious.

We've not yet Succeeded

Today I've begun my second week of internship but things seem progress much slower than I expected, which makes me a little bit frustrated.

Recently, Cabrini is hosting a Golf Benefit to raise its fund for next month as well as to provide a chance for people from different areas… Continue

Let's Get Started

I'd never imagined such experience: flying 13 hours oversea and spending most of my summer time intern in a totally new country for a non-profit organization. But now I'm here, in Chicago, the windy city, working with a group of enthusiastic members in Cabrini Connections, Tutor/Mentor Connection.…

first day

It's the first day of my intern; I'm going to stay here for almost two months. To be honest, I don't know what the company does before I came here. After Dan's introduction and Michael's video, an intern who has

worked here several years ago, I think I got the main point of this company.

their life and help them to reach it with our connections in the…

Mentors transitioning from college to career

It is a joy to see some of our 4-year mentors transition from college to graduate and start their careers. I know that the fact they personally experienced mentoring youth one-on-one will stay with them in the work place. I hope they will advocate for mentoring among more young professionals.

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…

Network Building - Next Steps, and Help Needed

Below is a map showing the mix of organizations who were part of the May Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference in Chicago.

On this map we see there were many tutor/mentor programs, some from other states, but not nearly as many programs as there are in Chicago. We see a few universities, represented. We see one donor. We see some media. This mix needs to change, to include more donors, more universities, and workforce… Continue
