Recruiting Student Teams to Create "Rest of Story" Map articles

This map is part of a blog article I wrote in 2009, following the shooting of a 9 year old in Chicago.  Our aim is to follow news media stories with our own "rest of the story" articles, showing why the shooting happened (poverty, poor schools, etc.) and where it happened, using the interactive Tutor/Mentor Program Locator. With this we can show…See More

About Me:
I've led a volunteer-based tutor/mentor program for more than 30 years. I created the Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC in 2011 to share ideas, innovate and help tutor/mentor programs grow in Chicago and other cities. I use my blog and the http://www.tutormentorexchange.net web site to share what I and others know so that more and better tutor/mentor programs can grow in Chicago and other major cities.

What do you hope to learn, or share, on this forum?
My goal is to inspire members to use the ideas we share in their own daily actions so that we increase the reach and frequency of messages that mobilize volunteers and donors to support volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs in Chicago and other cities where there are high concentrations of poverty.

Use Concept Maps to Visualize Strategies and Show Networks

This is one of many concept maps I've created to visualize the commitment I and other leaders need to make to help youth in all high poverty neighborhoods of a city get the support systems they need to more successfully move through school and into careers.  While you can click through the nodes on this map, to other maps, I created this library of concept maps, to show the wide variety that…

Use web library to support the growth of your tutor/mentor efforts

This graphic is what you see when you visit the Tutor/Mentor Connection web library, which I've been building for more than 20 years (and on the Internet since 1998).  

The library is organized into categories, just like any other library. You can find research showing where and why volunteer based tutor/mentor programs…

Visualization of services offered by youth organization

I'm trying to create a visualization that any youth serving organization might be willing to use to visually communicate what time of day they reach youth, what age range they serve and what types of learning and mentoring activities are offered.

This is what I've done so far.  This…

Hi, Daniel. 

Thank you for the response! You do not need to worry about me, I'll play nice in the sandbox. I was invited by a friend of mine to join, so I am checking it out. I would love to grab coffee in the loop sometimes. Email me at travis@donorpath.org, and we'll find a time to connect. 

Best, 

Travis

Hey Dan

I don't know if you remember me.  I spoke at the June 2013 conference and have attended earlier conferences.  I told you I would consider volunteering after I retired.  Can you use some help getting the next conference together?    Maxine

Daniel,

Today I shared information with two start-up organizations about your websites

and how it is the best resources for a new business.  We plan on working  together on your website.

Kind Regards

Ronda (BFJP)

Daniel, one of the reasons I was attracted to a conversation with you is that you had already posted the graphic on Mentoring Kids to Careers.  Thanks for sharing the link again.

Follow up on website: it is done but I am awaiting for http://www.heismyrockmissionary.org to point to

http://www.barbaraprivatedutynurse.com to kick in.  I spoke with register.com to remove their banner off of my website so they are in the process of doing so.  They ask that I wait at least 24 hours for heismyrockmissionary.com to point to my original site.

At 2:09pm on August 18, 2013, Barbara A Williams said…

Yes. I am almost done updating my website, and It should be done by tomorrow.
