Brief Synopsis of my Experience

Here is my final project for my internship, that breifly demonstrates what I have learned from my experience with Tutor/Mentor Connection.  This is a brief synopsis of what I learned and in what ways I feel that this project can impact the future.  I am greatful for the time I was involved with T/MC and hope to remain connected to it in the future.  The ideas are simple, yet go against the way in what I feel most people think about in terms of how non profits operate and how to address…

A Call to Partnerships

Throughout my internship at T/MC, I have been struggling with the idea of how universities can become actively involved in the nonprofit sector and with tutor/mentor programs, and even provide a source of constant revenue.  One idea is simply to have students involved in the school go out and become volunteers with different organizations, providing the tutor/mentor programs with a constant stream of tutors and mentors, however this would probably only last for a short time (6 months…

The Conference

***This post was created a few weeks ago, but was "saved to draft" and was never published...I'm new to blogging...don't judge***

 

On May 19 and 20, Tutor/Mentor Connections hosted its bi-annual conference in Matteson, IL.  Leading up to the conference, I did not know what to expect or how it would look like, but I was optimistic about a good turnout.  I was not disappointed.  The conference itself was much larger than I had anticipated, and everyone I met during those two…

Mentor Retention/Recruitment Study

During my research last week, I came across a study that dealt with mentor volunteer retention and recruitment, specifically looking at the gap between male and female mentors.  This is an important subject to tackle as the authors cite studies that show that mentees who are connected with the same mentor for 2 years show the most significant positive change, whereas the mentees who are paired with the…

Hi Joseph,

I hope you're doing well and that you're having a good start to your work at T/MC. I know that Dan has put you on some projects focused on finding ways to communicate T/MC's message and raising awareness and understanding about the value of this type of thinking. I know our times in the office don't seem to overlap much, but perhaps we can sit down for a moment on Monday to touch base and brainstorm.

 

This site is also a place where we can touch base when we aren't able to arrange to meet in person. I'm looking forward to working with you!

 

Have a great weekend!

Hi Joseph,

 

I hope you're having fun looking through our web sites.

 

I encourage you to visit this link and look at the video that was done by Nicola, who is in the UK. She's explaining the OHAT section and how people can use it.

http://tutormentorconnection.ning.com/video/ohats02avi-1?commentId=783429%3AComment%3A13585&xg_source=activity

 

If you can learn to use the application she used, which is open source, you can be creating videos to show what we do at the same time as you are exploring this information yourself.

 

This could be a valuable tool to education, inform and raise support.

 

Dan
