What do you hope to learn, or share, on this forum?
I hope to share my journey as I learn more about how your organisation has worked, continue to raise awareness across private, public and voluntary organisations about your work and how it could be applied in the UK.

I am actively seeking opportunities to connect with local economic partnerships and explore ways of funding the amazing work that you are doing.

TrailMeme of Tutor Mentor Connection - possibilities for Surrey

Hi Everyone,

I am from Surrey, UK (just south of London) and I am trying to connect volunteers interested in supporting tutor / mentoring programs over here. I have started to meet with people from university, community learning, business colleagues and they often would like to know more. 


I first came across Tutor / Mentor Connection on PLENK2010 and found this great tool…

The Equality Trust might be another UK group for you to try to connect with.

Hi Nicola.


I don't know Tessy but hope you introduce her to the group. One goal I have from the Social Network Analysis group is to be able to show who is in my network so that others can know who I know, or have connected to over the past 18 years.  Without this it's almost impossible to recall at any given time who all these people are.


The names I sent you yesterday were just the result of me going through one set of links on the http://www.tutormentorconnection.org site.  If I went through all of the links I probably would be able to point out several more UK people that would be valuable for you to connect with.


I don't have the time to do this, or the manpower for the SNA project, but it could be something taken on by volunteers or interns from one or more universities.


I posted a blog article today showing OHATS growth over the past 10 years and included the video you're working on in it. Thank you.

Here's another person you might connect with.



I havethis link on the T/MC site. It has not been updated in a couple of years so I'm not sure where she is blogging now

Hi Nicola,


I'm browsing some of the links I host on the T/MC site and one is the YouthNet in the UK. I encourage you to include them in your research because you probably can borrow from many of their ideas and perhaps create a link that connects them to us.

Thanks for joining. I hope you'll help build interaction and collaboration on the platform. There's a section dedicated to OHATS where we discuss the meaning of each metric and talk about resources needed.
