Nearly 100 people attended the Tutor/Mentor Conference in Matteson, Il on May 19 and 20. Workshops on Social Media show how we can all stay connected. Follow the conference on twitter, using #tutormentorconf and follow the T/MC using @tutormentorteam.
Share ideas, network and build collective actions using the Tutor/Mentor Connection conference forum
While we temporarily cannot add to the links library we can add links and descriptions of other programs, ideas, research and opportunities in the discussion forums on this site.
And, if you write blog articles about tutoring/mentoring you can exchange ideas with the Tutor/Mentor Connection blog just by posting a link to us in your own blog
The May 19 and 20 Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference will be held this week. While we are stretched thin to pull the conference together, we've found that we now have a major problem editing the links in the T/MC Library and Chicago Programs area.
This is a photo taken on Monday, May 13 as I shook hands with Mayor Richard M. Daley of Chicago.
How many non profits have an advertising strategy that draws attention, volunteers and dollars to their program throughout the year? This new Tutor/Mentor Connection video shows what such a strategy might look like. It also show how volunteers, business leaders and others can use their own talent and technology to build support for volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs.
In this discussion form section I've posted some links to articles about Collective Impact. This may be valuable information for any organization working to bring people together and support their actions over a period of years. There must be others writing about this. If you know of other articles, please submit links using the comments section.
