Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference is this week!

Hello Everyone! I just wanted to remind everybody that the May Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking conference is THIS Thursday and Friday, May 27th and 28th. Registration, Breakfast, and the morning keynote will be held in the Simpson Hall Multi-Purpose Room, 6333 N. Winthrop Ave., however the entrance is on Sheridan Rd.

One of the many exciting things about the conference is how many new programs are participating. I will highlight these programs in a future blog post. However, I would like to give a shout-out to the Children's Home + Aid Society, the Abraham Lincoln Center, Jeanette's Joy Community Services, the Black Angel Network, and others that are recent additions to the conference network as well as the Tutor/Mentor Program Locator.

While we're so thrilled and excited about the conference, I must close on a more serious note. Cabrini Connections, Tutor/Mentor Connection is currently in another funding crisis right now. We don't have enough money to cover rent and payroll this week. Meanwhile, we have a conference this week as you all know, as well as our Year-End dinner next month, and our annual Jimmy Biggs Memorial Golf Tournament next month. If you would like to help out, you could sponsor a scholarship for someone to attend the conference, donate to the Year-End Dinner fund, or be golf tournament sponsor. Or, you could just mail a check payable to "Cabrini Connections" to Cabrini Connections, Tutor/Mentor Connection, 800 W. Huron, First Floor, Chicago, IL 60642 or just pay using PayPal. It's been too wonderful and successful of a year for us to be short of funds now. Help us stay afloat and donate today.
