On Thursday, May 17 and Friday, May 18, more than 200 leaders, volunteers and supporters of volunteer-based tutoring/mentoring programs gathered in Chicago to share ideas, network, and work together to build more and better programs to help inner-city youth succeed in school, and build the adult support network that helps them move to jobs and careers.
The conference web site shows the agenda, speaker list and roster of people who have registered.
In collaboration with the Tutor Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference, the Fathers For The Future Foundation, hoste conference within the Tutor/Mentor Conference, which included two panel discussions and three workshops. A Blueprint for Success was a professional conference that encourages open participation and dialogue from the stakeholders that are directly affected, and can benefit from financially independent young men.

While the conference is over, the networking and learning is continuing. We hope you'll use the resources on this web site, as well as the discussion fourms, to continue to network and learn from each other. We hope this leads to shared actions that mobilize more volunteers for all programs as school starts in August of 2007.
Thank you to everyone who donated their time to participate in this conference. I look forward to working with you in the coming weeks and months.
