In order for volunteers to connect consistently with kids in high poverty areas of big cities and build this understanding, organized programs need to be in these places, to facilitate these connections. So what type of thinking is going on in all of the places where people are thinking about this problems?

A Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference has been held in Chicago every six months since May 1994. The most recent was June 14 at First Unitarian Church in Hyde Park. See http://www.tutormentorconference.org for more information and to view the attendee list.


This is just one of many graphics I've created to try to illustrate the range of information communities need to think of when building youth support strategies such as volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs. If you browse other articles and the links library on this web site , or even do a web search for "tutor/mentor" and then looked at the images page, you'd find dozens that I've created over the past 15 years.

The networking conferences offer an opportunity for people who are connected via our web library and maps to connect and build stronger relationships.  If you can attend, please make an effort.

If you can become a sponsor and help us build these conferences in the future we need your help. See Sponsor Page.
