Now, when parents, donors and volunteers use the Program Locator link on the T/MC web site to find contact information, and web links, to tutor/mentor programs operating in specific zip codes of the Chicago region, they will also get a Google Map that shows where these programs are located. 

Parents, social workers and teachers can use this service to find sites where youth can be enrolled for volunteer-based tutoring/mentoring, while community leaders can use this service to learn which neighborhoods have enough programs, or where there are too few programs. 

Volunteers, donors and business partners can use these maps to determine where to give there talent,  leadership, dollars and technology to help existing programs provide constantly improving services, and to help create new programs where needed.

This work was done by volunteers. If you or your company would like to provide financial support for the work the Tutor/Mentor Connection is doing, email tutormentor2@earthlink.net
