I created the Tutor/Mentor Connection in 1993 as part of a non-profit organization that also was creating a site-based tutor/mentor program serving teens in the Cabrini-Green neighborhood of Chicago. I created the Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC in 2011 to keep the T/MC strategy going in Chicago and share it with other cities after support for the strategy was discontinued in the original non profit.
Not being a 501-c-3 non profit has made it almost impossible to find dollars to fund this work, yet the need for an intermediary doing what I've been doing is greater than ever.
