Giving Back, Cabrini Green:

The first interview in our Giving Back series is with Casey Thompson, Edgewood College graduate student and lead counselor of Cabrini Connections. Casey, along with a group of Edgewood College Teacher Education Candidates, collaborated with Cabrini Connections in Chicago to develop a three-day program that focuses on the needs and goals of Chicago’s at-risk youth. The mentors, aspiring teachers who have dedicated their lives to education, worked one-on-one with students to provide them with the guidance and tutelage they need to achieve success as adults. In this video, Casey describes, in his own words, what the program means to him, his colleagues, and Chicago’s Cabrini Green community. 



Giving Back, REACH-a-Child™

The second video in our Giving Back series features Paul Gilbertson of REACH-a-Child™. Founded in 2007, REACH-a-Child teams up with first responders across the country, using books to bring smiles to the faces of traumatized children. When a police officer, firefighter, or EMT witnesses a child in crisis, they can simply pull out their REACH-a-Child™ BACKpacket, and offer the child a book to read. This draws the child's attention away from the situation at hand and creates a positive interaction with a first responder. The power of imagination provides a child with an escape from a vehicle collision, domestic dispute, or natural disaster. Throughout the past year, ACI has had the privilege of building a strong relationship with Paul and REACH-a-Child™ We hope to continue working with such an honorable organization for many years to come.
