Engage volunteers in structured, non-school tutoring, mentoring that has life changing impact
Cabrini Connections is a grassroots non-profit organization founded to address the large number of children who live in educationally disadvantaged environments and thus fail to obtain the basic skills and experiences necessary to compete for employment in the global economy of the 21st century. The organization was founded on the theory that after comprehensive, volunteer-based tutoring, mentoring, and school to work programs make a significant difference, encouraging young people to finish high school and enter the work force.
Since its inception, Cabrini Connections has created opportunities for inner city children. By recruiting quality volunteers, the organization provides quality tutoring and mentoring to teens living in the Cabrini Green area of Chicago. Since January 1993, more than 500 youth have had anywhere from one to seven years of tutoring/mentoring.
From 1993 to 2011 the Tutor/Mentor Connection was also part of Cabrini Connections. It's goal was to help volunteer based programs like Cabrini Connections operate in all poverty neighborhoods of Chicago. In 2011 the organization split into two parts. Cabrini Connections is still a 501-c-3. The Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC was created to provide continued support for Tutor/Mentor Connection.
