Help take Take Tutor/Mentor Connection into Second Life and Blog Exchange
By @ 2:05 PM :: 5470 Views :: Article Rating :: Advocacy, T/MC
 
We are hosting a Tutor/Mentor Leadership Conference in Chicago on Nov. 30 and you can review its goals at http://www.tutormentorconference.bigstep.com.  I've posted messages in various forums to recruit bloggers who will blog about the conference topics during December, with a goal of creating a larger network, a greater understanding, while influencing year-end donors to seek out tutor/mentor programs in Chicago and other cities for holiday and year-end contributions.

I'd like to find volunteers who might take this message into Second Life.  These volunteers could be people already involved with tutoring/mentoring, or people who want to learn to use Second Life to support a cause.

If anyone is interested in taking on this role, or if you're already doing it, please introduce yourself to me by email or by posting your web address on my blog.

You can also add your blog address to the Links section.

The goal is not to help one single tutor/mentor program in one neighborhood of a big city get the resources it needs, but to help every volunteer-based tutor/mentor program, in every high poverty area, get a more consistent flow of the resources they need to grow from good to great in helping kids who live in educationally and economically disadvantaged environments.
