The Tutor/Mentor Connection will host a one day conference at the Field Museum in Chicago on November 21. We are now recruiting workshop leaders and panel participants. The goal of this conference is to encourage networking and idea sharing, while increasing public visibility for volunteer-based tutoring/mentoring as a non-school strategy to help build student aspirations, a sense of belonging and connections with caring and supportive adults.

While most people will not come to the conference, we do hope this event stimulates on-line networking and collaboration so we can expand support for volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs all over the country.
