Upcoming Spring Events!

Hello Everybody! Happy First Day of Spring! With the winding down of the school year and the beginning of nice weather, Cabrini Connections, Tutor/Mentor Connection has some exciting events coming up!

One of my favorite parts of working at Cabrini Connections, Tutor/Mentor Connection is having the privilege of supervising the art club on Monday nights. Jackie, Nicole, Danielle, and the other volunteers do an amazing job exposing different styles of art to the kids. Last year they did this mural that I think is absolutely breathtaking:

This year they did another mural that I think is equally incredible. Anyway, like last year, the art club will have an art show on Saturday April 4th, from 5-10pm at the Palette and Chisel, 1012 N. Dearborn. Last year's art show was a lot of fun and I encourage everybody to come out, be impressed by the amazing talent of our kids, and even bid on some of the artwork. Check out how amazing the art show looked last year:

Also, the May Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference is going to be amazing this year! It's going to be Thursday and Friday May 28th and 29th at Northwestern University School of Law, 375 E. Chicago Ave. We already have some amazing speakers lined up, such as Dan Guerin from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University talking about how business schools and non-profits can work together, Susie Quern Pratt and Jenny Ellis Richards, who are evaluation professionals, speaking about Evaluation Strategies, and Bart Phillips, the founder and CEO of Community Building Tutors talking about how he went from working in the for-profit sector to the non-profit sector. Registration has already begun, so you should sign up now! Also, we are still filling up slots for workshops. So, if you're interested in presenting a workshop, sign up here.

I hope to see everybody at the Art Show in April and at the Conference in May!
