Dare Mighty Things, based in New Hampshire, has launched an "In the Arena" community forum to draw together people woking with youth, with similar goals to the Tutor/Mentor Connection, based in Chicago. This article introduces Dan Bassill of Tutor/Mentor Connection to their community. I hope you'll join me there.
The Spring Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference will be held on May 19 and 20 at Victory Apostelic Church in Matteson, Il. Speakers and workshop presenters are now being recruited. If you'd like to present information about tutoring/mentoring, capacity building, marketing, fund raising, collaboration, evaluation, etc., please submit a proposal using the form on the conference web site which is http://www.tutormentorconference.org
How can volunteers, businesses, universities and philanthropists help tutor/mentor programs grow from good to great?
Follow the Tutor/Mentor Connecton blog and use the ideas to build support for tutor/mentor programs in Chicago or in your own community.
At the Jan 2011 Mentoring Summit in Washington, DC First Lady Michelle Obama offered her support for Mentoring. Now what can you and teams of volunteers in companies and churches and colleges do to help build the infrastructure so effective tutor/mentor programs are in more places?
