Great Hearts Initiatives | Chicago Tutoring Connection

Mission

Cabrini Connections helps economically disadvantaged students succeed in high school & move on to college or a career. We do this by pairing the students with an adult tutor who supports their academic achievement and provides guidance in life skills.

Our vision is to provide inner-city youths with the resources to succeed in school. To foster leadership qualities that the students will bring to their communities and make positive changes.

The tutoring program was created in 1992 to support students from the Montgomery Ward Cabrini-Green Tutoring Program. The founders were volunteers with that program that saw the need to continue to help those students after the sixth grade. Cabrini Connections started offering one-on-one tutoring to 7-12 grade students in donated space in the Montgomery Ward headquarters building.

Since 1992, more than 625 students have attended the program for at least one year along with over 800 volunteer tutor/mentors. Over 90% of 12th grade program graduates have entered college.
