Thanks to everybody who came out to the Art Festival!

On Saturday, along with glorious weather, was the Cabrini Connections Art and Video Festival. It was a great success and it was so wonderful getting to meet the students' families and have my friends meet the students for the first time. I think everybody - parents, other students, volunteers, Cabrini Connections, Tutor/Mentor Connection employees, and friends of the volunteers and Cabrini Connections, Tutor/Mentor Connection employees - was extremely impressed by the level of talent and dedication that our students and volunteers put into the Art and Video Festival. I want to especially honor Jacqueline Shay, Nicole Gordon, and Danielle Danno, who are the art club volunteers, and Rebecca Parrish, who was the the video club volunteer for all their hard work, dedication, and enthusiasm that they bring to helping kids express themselves. They are just a couple of reasons why I can't say enough good things about our volunteers here at Cabrini Connections.

In addition to the great event that the Art and Video Festival, I also have the wonderful news that we have a new and improved Tutor/Mentor Connection Program Locator. I seriously played with the interactive map all afternoon, so check it out!

Finally registration is up for the conference (which, just to reiterate, will be Thursday and Friday May 28th and 29th at Northwestern Law School). Register now and if you're interested also submit a form to present a workshop. We already have lots of exciting workshops on our agenda, so get excited!
