Cabrini Connections is a tutor/mentor program for students in the Chicago area with the mission that "every child who joins a tutor/mentor program in 7th or 8th grade is starting a job and career of his or her choice by age 25." Students have a safe place to hang out after school, and every student has a tutor/mentor that they can get help on homework from or just talk to about their goals or problems.
Between October 2010 and May 2011 I volunteered to run their Tech Club where students could learn more about science and technology. Overall a great group of people.

To celebrate the 25 blessed years of life I've had, I am raising $500 by August 5, 2011, the date of my birthday. I have five major causes I am supporting for my birthday:
US Military Men & Women
Women in Developing Nations
Please donate and stay tuned!
