While most of us are searching for resources to help our programs operate over the summer and in the 2009-10 school year, the May Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference, held on May 28 and 29, at the Northwestern University School of Law, was an opportunity to share ideas, network with peers, and work together to overcome the challenges each program faces on a continued basis.

More than 120 people attended, coming from Arizona, Virginia, Mississippi, Wisconsin, Indiana, Iowa, Wisconsin, and of course Chicago and other parts of Illinois.  We thank everyone who volunteered time as speakers and panel members, and who just made time to attend. Use the attendee list to make connection with people who attended.

What happens between conferences is really what matters. We hope people will network with us and each other, using this web site as a resource, and using the maps we create as a resource.  We encourage you to use the community form on http://tutormentorconnection.ning.com to connect with us, or join us on Facebook, Linked in, or in the discussion sections of this web site.

If you want to provide a donation to support the work the Tutor/Mentor Connection is doing, we'd really appreciate your help. Use this form to make a donation.
