Do you want to make a difference? Do you like working with kids? Do you want to directly see the impact of your volunteering? Are you awesome?

If you answered “yes” to two or more of these questions, you should consider becoming a tutor for a student. There are opportunities across the city to get involved, and Zealous Good member Cabrini Connections is one of the best places to tutor and mentor students in 7th through 12th grade.

“But what if I wasn’t exactly an “A+” student in high school”

Maybe you didn’t have perfect grades in high school, but you can have A+ impact in the life of a student (you are welcome for your daily dose of cheeseball). You don’t need a background in tutoring or mentoring. You just need to be a person who cares and wants to make a difference in a kids life.

Interested? Call Toni Pullen or Steve Miller at 312-492-9614 or email toni.pullen@sbcglobal.net.

Be awesome today and consider becoming a tutor/mentor. The program is looking for up to 10 new tutors to come on board and we’d love if you’d consider it.
