What if funding ends for a tutor/mentor program? Here's an articfle from the newsletter of Australia's Youth Mentoring Network, where many programs face the prospect of closing because of lack of continued funding.
The best solution is to innovate ways to keep funding in place, or to find new funding. This is the goal of the Tutor/Mentor Connection and why we host this web site and a Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference every six months. We invite our friends from Australia and other cities to join us in on-line forums where we can share ideas that work in some parts of the world, which could work in other parts of the world. Let's not let the funding end. Our kids already have too many people letting them down.
