A Map Based Chicago Tutor/Mentor Program Locator
This is a pilot version (created in 2008) of a map based Chicago Tutor/Mentor Directory showing the entire Chicago region and non-school, site based, programs . The map has layers of information showing where programs are most needed, based on poverty rates, locations of poorly performing schools, incidents of violence. It also has overlays of assets (business, colleges, faith groups, hospitals, etc.) who could be helping programs grow in areas where they are located. Due to lack of funding and tech support the site has not been updated since 2013 and the census data and political boundaries have not been updated since 2009. However the site still serves as a model that can be used in any city, including Chicago. The Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC seeks partners to update and further develop this interactive directory and to make it available in other cities.
