Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference


Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference

Tutor/Mentor Connection/Institute, LLC hosted Leadership and Networking Conference in Chicago every six months from May 1994 to May 2015. Conferences have not been held since due to lack of financial support, but we continue to attempt to engage people in on-line networking and idea sharing using social media and forums like this.

Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference in Chicago

This map outlines the information and ideas the Tutor/Mentor Connection and Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC have collected over the past 20 years. We have shared this via web sites, blogs and social media. In addition, every six months since May of 1994 we've hosted a conference in Chicago to invite people in our network and involved in building, operating, sustaining and participating in volunteer-based tutoring and/or mentoring programs to come together to share ideas, build relationships and innovate ways to draw resources to each of us so we can all do our work better each year. Visit the web site and see more about the conference. Join the discussion here and help shape what happens, and what you can get out of it.

While we hope to continue face-to-face events, more people can be connected to each other and these ideas via on-line networking and learning. I encourage you to embed this Debategraph into your own blog or web site. Encourage your students, volunteers, donors and leaders to add their own ideas. Then work with us to engage more people in using this information to help kids living in economically disadvantaged areas.

The most recent conference was May 8, 2015 at the Metcalfe Federal Building in Chicago. There has not been a formal conference since then, due to lack of funds. However, with your help we can use this space to bring more people to these ideas and focus on actions that help tutor/mentor programs grow in the coming school year.

Sue - I will keep you up-to-date with all the conference planning and see if we can do a webnar of sorts for you.
Also to anyone who is interested in helping plan the conference, we're having a planning meeting tomorrow, September 22nd at 2pm at Cabrini Connections, Tutor/Mentor Connection, 800 W. Huron, First Floor, Chicago, IL 60642.

Sue, there are many options, and they don't need to come from me in Chicago. The things we focus on at the conference are topics that others could push out from different places, via webnars. They can also be topics that get discussed in forums like this. Do you or any others in this forum have the capacity to host a live webnar during November?

Are there any options to attending the conference "virtually" by webcam?

Hi Everybody! The Tutor/Mentor Leadership and networking Conference is going to be Thursday and Friday November 19th and 20th at Norris University Center at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. We are currently putting together a November Conference Planning Committee and are hoping to meet the 2nd or 3rd week in September. Let me know if you would like to be a part of the conference planning committee and help make this the best conference yet!

I updated the conference home page based on some suggestions sent by Angel. We need to encourage those who are registering to present workshops and sit on panels to stay for the entire day, or half day so that they share what they know as part of other discussions.

The conference web site registration form and attendee list is now ready to be used. If you're planning to attend the conference, as a speaker, or participant, I encourage you to register.

We'll be adding new speakers to the roster over the coming weekend.

Since this conference is marketed by email networking, please begin to reach out to encourage people to sign up to attend.

Congratulations on your new position! Let me look at my e-mail, sometimes things go into the spam box that shouldn't. Would you be willing to perhaps do a workshop on what the Chicago Housing Authority is doing to give youth better opportunities? I will shoot you an e-mail about this.
Comment by Daniel Bassill on March 31, 2009 at 9:28am
Congratulations Chris. I hope that in your role with the CHA you might encourage them to become a sponsor and supporter of the Conferences and the T/MC because of what we're doing to help tutor/mentor programs grow in high poverty areas of the city.

Nicole, I have changed positions. I am now the director youth opportunities for Chicago Housing Authority. I'll reach out to you today, Tuesday, March 31, 2009. I've tried your email but I may have used the wrong one. My new contact information is:
