November 7, 2010: Two Organizations of Service
November 7, 2010 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- This week's Chicagoing looks at two distinct organizations which in their own very special ways have had a positive impact on thousands of lives.
The Chicago Cavaliers Drum and Bugle Corps mission is to provide its members with life changing experiences, educationally and socially, which help each individual member gain realworld life skills, musical training and performance experiences. Through the development of the character traits of dedication, discipline and teamwork, each member of this close knit, all male fraternity learns what is required to be successful on and off the performance field. We talked about the Cavaliers' sixty-plus years of service and the lives it has positively helped. Visit www.cavaliers.org.
Since the early 1970s the National Latino Education Institute (originally The Spanish Coalition for Jobs) has served to enhance the quality of life for Latinos through educational, vocational, and employment services, and through advocacy, thus enabling the achievement of economic independence. We talked about its years of service inspiring success and changing lives for thirty seven years. Go to www.nlei.org for more information.
