Tutor/Mentor Connection

Connect knowledge, volunteers, youth and make a difference.

The word of Cabrini Connections, Tutor/Mentor Connection is spreading. More people are starting to get involved bringing CC,T/MC into the lime light. Recently people from Ohio, Texas, Georgia, Minnesota, DC, New York, Virginia, and other states have joined our Ning site in search of ways to get more involved and network. Currently, CC,T/MC is bringing in a total of 242 members from people all around world. This Ning site is in place as a networking site to bring people in the world together for a special purpose, to inspire the youth of today so that they may be able to accomplish their goals in life.

All of the 242 members on Cabrini Connections, Tutor/Mentor Connection site is there to help see the organizations mission play out, some of these people are tutors/mentors, interns, while some are donors and supporters of the cause. All of these people may come from different backgrounds but there is one thing that is keeping them connected and that is the love and dedication that they have for CC, T/MC.

Since the Ning site hosts people from all over the United States and even people from other countries, it can be difficult for some to come together. On May 27 and 28th Cabrini Connections will be hosting their 31st biannual conference at Loyola Universities Lakeshore Campus. This conference is part of an ongoing effort to improve the quality and availability of tutor/mentor programs in areas of Chicago with high concentrations of poverty. Through the Internet, this conference connects program leaders and supporters in Chicago with people and ideas across the country and the globe, such as people from our Ning site that may live elsewhere.

The Tutor/Mentor Connection (T/MC) first held the conference in 1994 after a survey of Chicago area programs revealed that more than half had little or no contact with other programs. Based on positive response from the first conference, T/MC decided to host a second conference in the same year, which attracted nearly 200 attendees.

Since then T/MC has continued to host the Conference twice a year and believes that the event can grow to more than 500 participants. As Social Networking capacities have grown on the Internet, the T/MC has added on-line forums to encourage conference participants and others who cannot attend the Chicago conferences to connect and collaborate on-line.
