Cabrini Connections' Success Steps
By nsbyrer @ 4:09 PM :: 3547 Views :: Article Rating :: Cabrini Connections
The Tutor/Mentor Connection (T/MC) draws its inspiration from the Cabrini Connections tutor/mentor program which meets at 800 W. Huron in Chicago.

Note: Volunteers who first joine Cabrini Connections between 1993 and 1997 helped create the Tutor/Mentor Connection and have helped raise all of the money that funds the Tutor/Mentor Connection.  At the same time, the growth of the Tutor/Mentor Connection has helped recruit volunteers and donors to support Cabrini Connections.

We encourage other tutor/mentor organizations to duplicate this strategy, leading T/MC type learning, networking and collaboration activities in a neighborhood or in an entire city.

This report, authored by Mr. Glen McGee, former Superintendent of Schools for the Sate of Illinois, provides arguments that support the growth of non-school tutor/mentor programs.
