I see it has been some time since anyone has posted anything in this forum. I will be participating in a young men mentoring program at my church in the South Shore community and would be interested in events and or advice that I could share with the young men that I will be working with.

We set up blogs for Chicago Hopes a few weeks ago. You can see one of these at http://tabwest.blogspot.com/

Call 312-492-9614 and Nicole White will help set up a similar blog for you. These are free and it is a first step to getting your story to the public.

Actually, we don't have a website. I'm not even the volunteer coordinator but my coordinator doesn't really do anything. I am looking into making a website soon and I am planning on attending the conference this year!

Do you have a web site, or blog, that describes your program and shows how volunteers can get involved? Visit the Chicago Program Links section of the T/MC site and you can review web sites of other programs. Some are great. Some need improvement. However, anytime a volunteer looks for a program in a specific part of the city, they only find the links that are posted.

You can borrow ideas from every other program, to develop the way you tell your story. If you need help setting up a blog, Nicole White from the T/MC can help you do that. Once you have a web site, post the link on the T/MC site. Keep it up to date with stories of what your volunteers and kids do and what your success are, and this will begin to help you get volunteers.

I also encourage you to look at the maps we create which show how people in specific political districts, or community areas, could be working together to mobilize business and university support for all of the tutor/mentor programs in the area, instead of each program struggling separately to get these resources.

We'll host the next conference on May 28 and 29 and I encourage you and others from your region to come as a group, and use that as a place where you all get ideas that you can collaboratively use to build tutor/mentor programs in the South Suburbs.

I am looking for volunteers that are willing to come out to the Harvey area once a week (Tuesday) from 4pm unitl 5pm and until 5:30pm (maybe 6pm) once a month. I have a tutoing program at Bryant Elementary School called the Reading Enrichment Activities Program. If anyone is interested, they can contact myself at 773-867-7317 or my volunteer coordinator at 773-867-7362

I've been contacted by two volunteers in the past couple of weeks wanting to volunteer in the South Suburbs. However, our database does not have much information about programs in this area, if there are any. I've been trying to stimulate the growth of a business/NPO/school group to take a lead in this region. Please join this group if you are interested.

I sent an invitation to Genny Boesen, Lisa Bly, Dr. Roudell Kirwood and Shanna Barnes, from the Center for Family Services in Joliet, and Angelique Crockett of South Suburban College to join this group. I'll follow up with other email.
