Cabrini Connections gets a Facelift

Please visit the newly redesigned Cabrini Connections site. In addition to getting an entirely new look, the new website is easier to use and provides more up-to-date information. New features include:
Take a look around and let us know what you think!

This is the second of our sites that have been rebuilt in the past few months. In February, the Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference site was rebuilt and moved to a new domain.

Both of these were large projects and could not have been accomplished without the help of volunteers. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the volunteers who helped with these redesigns:

Cabrini Connections site
Holger Proske - helped with web design and programming
Amy Frey - rewrote and reorganized the history page, reorganized our Volunteer Weekly Newsletter

Conference site
Donna Schmid - helped write and edit most of the content for site
John Bull - created and programmed our online registration system and list of attendees

These behind-the-scenes volunteers are not very visible, but without them and many others, our program would not run. We are always looking for talented, enthusiastic people to volunteer with us. Please see the volunteer descriptions pages at Cabrini Connections and Tutor/Mentor Connection for more information.

When we say that Cabrini Connections is a "volunteer-based" tutor/mentor program, we don't just mean that volunteers serve as one-on-one tutors and mentors.

We mean that volunteers provide the time and talent to make this entire process possible. The work that volunteers have done to rebuild our main web sites is one example of how TALENTED people who may not have time to make a one-on-one commitment, can make a huge investment of their talent to help us help hundreds of other volunteers connect with youth at Cabrini Connections and at many other tutor/mentor programs in Chicago and in other cities.

Thank you to each of you who have helped with the web site projects. Thank you to all of the others who have given time and talent in the past 14 years to build the infrastructure that supports tutoring and mentoring at Cabrini Connections.
