As our tutoring sessions begin to come to a end for this academic year, we continue to carry out our mission of connecting our youth to resources that can and will assist them with preparing for the future. On May 8th, 2008 during our Thursday night tutoring session we are providing an opportunity to do just that, connect the youth to a very respected and beneficial resource. Mr. Burt Blanchard will be our guest speaker for the night and will be addressing our middle school students, their mentors, and the Thursday night staff. Mr. Blachard, whose bio will be located in the weekly newsletter, has the ability to not only talk about the importance of staying in school and focusing on a career, but also to talk about the specific opportunities that exist in his field (Supply Chain Logistics/Management). We are honored to have Mr. Blanchard here as a guest speaker and we hope that this experience will be beneficial for the volunteers as well as the students.
Tutors/Mentors we would also like to encourage you to take this experience one step further and use this as another opportunity to get and keep your students motivated and driven for the colleges and careers of their choice in the future. You can have them begin to write their own 5 year plans, career plans and goals, or have them attempt to get an intern at an organization they could see themselves at in the future.
Student's, volunteers, and Cabrini Connection staff, lets welcome Mr. Burt Blanchard with open arms!
