Hi Lauren,

Thanks for meeting with me. Below is a chart you can use to begin mapping your network. In each box, try to think of one, or two, people who might be interested in CC, T/MC if they were introduced to us by you. Feel free to add more boxes. Your network is much more extensive than you know. You can open a PDF of this to use.

Your first goal is to add five people to this chart each week, and send them an email, letter, press release, or some other form of communication that interests them in our work. Thus in week one you'd be contacting five people. In week two that would grow to 10. By week five it would be 25 or more.

If others are reviewing this message, I encourage you to use the network building chart for the same purpose.

Hi Lauren,

Thanks for joining Cabrini Connections, Tutor/Mentor Connection. This Ning group is where I'm coaching many volunteers and interns to do work that helps volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs grow in the Chicago region, and in other cities. Please browse around the sections and get acquainted with the blogs and other features.

In the groups section you'll see many sub groups. I'd like you to join the conference group, the fund raising group, and the Acacia group (and any others that are interesting to you.)

Your work-study will focus on helping CC, T/MC find sponsors and donors. This flash presentation (created by interns who were on this Ning group) illustrates how our events keep attention focused on tutoring/mentoring throughout the year, while they bring people together to learn and network, and also raise money to support what we do.

One of the other groups is a Social Network Analysis group. If you browse through that you'll see how we are "mapping the network of people who we're connecting with". Knowing your network enables you to contact the right people when you're looking for information, or looking for help.

Thus, I want you, and our other volunteers, to create network maps, that show who you know in your college, job, family, high school, church, who might become a donor or sponsor, or participant, in the conference, or the golf benefit, if you were to send them information about what we do, and if they began reading our blogs or following the discussions in this ning group.

As you talk to these people via blogs, email and facebook some will become our supporters.
