Celebrate National Mentoring Month with a Donation of Time, Talent or Dollars

Each year the January National Mentoring Month celebrates the role mentors play in the lives of all of us. As we think of who has been our mentor, we ask you to focus attention on kids living in inner city neighborhoods where kids and families need extra mentors, and extra learning and experience opportunities in the non-school hours. These are places where tutor/mentor programs like Cabrini Connections are needed. In the Program Locator and Chicago Program Links sections of this web site you can find dozens of programs like Cabrini Connections. Each is constantly looking for resources (dollars, manpower, leaders, ideas, technology, etc.) that they can use to maintain connections between mentors and youth.

Learn how your company can recruit talent volunteers (PDF), to help build stronger tutor/mentor programs in Chicago and other cities. Learn ways you can be more consistent in connecting people in your network (pdf)  to tutor/mentor progams in your city.

Please consider a 2008 donation to the Cabrini Connections or to one of the other mentoring/tutoring organizations listed on our web site to help every tutor/mentor program in Chicago, and in other cities, continue this service in 2008 and beyond. Thank you.
