Building awareness requires a consistent message. Interns at Cabrini Connections like Emily Gunn
, E Wilson
, and I write blogs and connect through social media realms in order to help continually spread the message of helping tutor/mentor students in low-income neighborhoods. We send out messages through different sources in hopes that people like you read them and feel compelled to help
Using that same concept every year we use the same annual calendar that help builds awareness, donors, and volunteers involvement in tutor/mentor programs in the Chicagoland area. As you can see above our next big event is in May where we have our Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference
in Chicago where three major things happen:
1. It connects leaders and supporters of volunteer-based tutoring, mentoring and education-to-career programs with each other.
2. It also builds visibility so that more volunteers and donors will choose to support tutor/mentor programs in the Chicago region
3. Helps T/MC maintain its Chicago Area Programs List of area tutor/mentor programs
If you are interested in joining the Cabrini Connections team this would be the perfect opportunity to see where you fit in and how you would like to participate. To discuss your involvement you can email firstname.lastname@example.org . Also, if you know of any friends or family members who would be interested in helping out our cause by either volunteering, donating, or even spreading the word, please send them to our website at www.tutormentorconnection.org/
Remember every little bit helps. It takes a village to help and be effective, so help join the village
and become apart of the Cabrini Connections solution!
