Research shows that education is one of the strongest predictors of health, so how do we connect leaders of hospitals, insurance companies and other public health businesses, with tutor/mentor programs in different neighborhoods of Chicago?
There are many people talking about "best practices" and how everyone should be following "best practices". What if compiling a set of mentoring "best practices" actually leads you down the wrong path? Read more.
In the Chicago Program Links, and in the Mentoring links, we have web sites for more than 200 youth serving organizations. When you click into them, some are very good at showing that they offer tutoring and/or mentoring and showing how volunteers can get involved. Others are not as good. We put these links here for two reasons.
A) we want volunteers and donors to find these programs, and provide on-going support to help each program grow to be a "world class" tutoring and/or mentoring program
B) we want the programs to learn to compare what other programs do, with what they do, so each program can constantly have ideas that help it have a greater impact on kids, volunteers and communities.
Here's a suggested way to look at each site.
