New Tutor/Mentor Exchange is up!

Hi Everybody! With all the excitement of the Inauguration, Martin Luther King Jr. Day and National Mentoring Month. I have neglected to mention that we have a new and improved Tutor/Mentor Exchange! Poke around and check out why we do what we do here at Cabrini Connections, Tutor/Mentor Connection.

Over the next couple of weeks, I'll write about some of the articles featured in Tutor/Mentor Exchange. The first one I'd like to point out is the one about OHATS, which is our Organizational History and Tracking System. If you log in as a guest (username: guest, password: visitor), you can see the history of what Tutor/Mentor Connection beginning in 2000. I've been trying to update it over the past couple of weeks, but ultimately I hope other organizations are compelled to login and record their doings with the Tutor/Mentor Connection as well. In any case, it's a very user friendly way of tracking and evaluating our accomplishments over the years so potential volunteers and donors can see the good work we have been doing.

One thing that is definitely worth recording in OHATS, is the fact that we have a Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference Planning Committee! Angel Diaz, the Progam Director at the Midtown Center for Boys has generously donated his time to help make the May Tutor/Mentor Conference even better than ever! Yesterday we met with leaders with several other programs about how we can both improve upon and continue the success of past Tutor/Mentor Conferences. We're still working on the minutes since a lot of great ideas were tossed around, so I hope to be blogging about that meeting either tomorrow or Monday. Anyway, my goal is that the people on the committee will be compelled to record all the good work they are doing for the Tutor/Mentor Connection in OHATS down the road.
