CON Student Volunteers Featured In UIC News

UIC News LogoA recent article in UIC News discussed the "UIC ENGAGE" program which provides tutoring in math and writing by UIC students to elementary school students.  Two of the UIC student volunteers highlighed in the article attend the UIC College of Nursing:

“As a child with working parents, I didn’t have any resources to find a tutor when I needed help, nor did I have an older sibling as a role model,” said Janess Borromeo, who is studying to be a nurse-practitioner specializing in gerontology . “UIC ENGAGE is a great program to help kids who lack extra resources, as well as providing role models they can look up to.”

“UIC ENGAGE allows me to help children in need. Being able to help kids achieve their goals is very rewarding,” said Sakai Parker, a third-year pre-nursing student.
