Mentoring Children in Local Elementary Schools!

Part of TAG’s mission is to provide opportunities for leadership, mentoring and community building. A great way to give back is to mentor those generations behind us!

TAG is eager to get involved. As a philanthropy/volunteer program, we want to gather a group of students who are interested in mentoring children at a local elementary school. It is a fantastic way to give back, it’s always nice on the resume and you can have a significant impact on a child’s life.

Please fill out this survey (http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SBSJP2M) to help us begin to plan for next semester! This is survey is the first step in this program, so please express your interest and availability! We will be discussing details/requirements/possible incentives in the upcoming weeks, so we need feedback from you all before moving forward. We hope to get this going near the start of the spring semester and that you all are just as excited about this as we are! 🙂

Thanks – power through these last few days before break! And as always, please let us know if you need anything!

Kathryn Free, President and Samantha Mathis, VP/Treasurer

TAG wants to help you through your transition to the University of Illinois. Please let us know if you have any concerns at all. We’re glad you are a part of our Fighting Illini family 🙂
