Holiday Letter from Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC
By tutormentor2 @ 6:19 PM :: 1906 Views :: Article Rating :: Funding and Philanthropy
 

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.

 

This is my annual holiday appeal letter.  I hope you'll read it, and offer support if you can.  Visit this page to find a PayPal button that you can use to send a contribution.
