Volunteer recruitment and other things

The month of August is upon us, and that means that our Fall Volunteer Recruitment Campaign is now officially in full swing. From now until the start of school we will not only be recruiting volunteers to be paired up with Cabrini-Green youth in tutoring/mentoring relationships throughout the year vis a vis Cabrini Connections, but we will also be promoting Tutoring/Mentoring programs across Chicagoland through our Tutor/Mentor Connection Volunteer Recruitment Campaign. So last week I sent PSA releases to every single Chicagoland radio station promoting tutoring/mentoring. Below is the 30 second spot I created that will be airing from now until the end of September all over the Chicagoland airwaves.
This is not a new article. It was written in August 2008 by Chris Warren, who was starting his one year fellowship with Tutor/Mentor Connection.  Read the rest of this article.
By posting this I hope to show that helping kids connect with mentors in well-organized programs is something that we've been doing for many years. It's something that we need to keep doing for many more years into the future.
