All programs need to be finding ways to engage all of their stakeholders in an on-going process of learning what it takes to connect a youth and volunteer, and have a transformative impact on the lives of both. All programs need to find ways to engage donors and volunteer talent.

In this section of the Tutor/Mentor Connection web library I host links to sites advocating for general operations funds, and sites showing challenges facing non profits. In this blog article I point so some examples of "crowdfunding" which I feel offers potential for small organizations to work together to attract donor support.
Share this information with your community and encourage members to read these articles, then use their understanding to innovate ways to support your organization, or to support youth serving organizations in your community. Browse the complete web library at http://tinyurl.com/TMC-Library
Influence What Resource Providers do, not just what program leaders do.
Most of my blog articles include maps and visualizations that focus attention on strategies that make comprehensive programs available in more places. Do a Google search for "tutor mentor" then look at the images. You'll see a wide range of graphics included in articles written since 2005.
Click on web sites of other organizations in the tutoring/mentoring field. Do they use maps and graphics to communicate similar ideas? I think they should. It will take many voices to attract the consistent attention of resource providers and policy makers, and keep them focused on tutor/mentor programs for a decade or longer.
