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…

Unleashing your personal power


This is a graphic that I include in many articles I write, illustrating the role individuals can take in reaching out to people they know to draw them to information we share on our web sites and to tutor/mentor program locations where they can be volunteers,  leaders, donors, etc.  I am speaking to a group of students from Governors State University tonight…

Internship programme & NGO's

Just as light bulbs require electricity to shine, the “new economy” requires theenergy of information and communications technologies (ICT) to illuminate local development. Around the world, billions of dollars have been spent oninfrastructure to give communities access to ICT. One of the non-profit organisations that put emphasis on connecting people with technology for social development is Digital Opportunity Trust(DOT) (http://www.dotrust.org). DOT is…

Building Philanthropic Capital to Fuel Good to Great

In my Tutor/Mentor Blog I use graphics like the one below to illustrate our goal of helping inner city youth grow up over a period of 10 to 20 years. We all start at birth and it takes 20 years to get through the first formal stages of education and into the college, vocational or job stage of our lives. Yet, if you live in high poverty areas, you face more challenges.


Thus, tutor/mentor programs, if they…

The Intern's Graphical Mood

I finally feel as though I pretty solid grasp on what this program can do for people, and I had a revelation on how to graphically represent it.  Whenever I think about the Cabrini Connections or even the Tutormentor Connection organization, I find myself thinking of a Jenga block tower, in which some children have many pieces missing due to  lacking in educational…

Cabrini Madness Strikes

This is a post a long time in coming, but due to illness and other academic related stresses, I have not been able to make mention of the fund-raising team that I am on.  My team is comprised of both staff and volunteers, and it is a part of the Cabrini Madness fund-raising event.  It's one of many fun ways that the staff and volunteers here…

The Measure of a Mayor

The New York Times: "When voters go the polls Tuesday to pick Chicago's first new mayor since the 1980s, they can reflect on a lively campaign that featured topics ranging from education and crime to whether one of the mayoral hopefuls had smoked crack.


"But one issue dwarfs all the others: like most local and state governments, City Hall is facing a gaping…

Brainstormed Out

This morning in my Community Psychology class, one thing occurred to me: if I am to make a presentation regarding university involvement to actual universities, I will need to present it in an academic manner for it to be taken seriously.  The presentation would be much more effective if empirically supported, and if I could utilize the empirical data in a concise, powerful, yet user-friendly manner, the material would reach far more viewers.  After spending two hours in the Adler School…

Return of the Intern

During the blizzard of 2011, I was unable to come to the site in person, but that did offer me time to read over many articles on the Tutor/Mentor Connection website regarding the influence of university leaders and how they can impact an organization such as this one.  They also made me realize how much it makes sense for university involvement in programs that aid disadvantaged children through the school system, especially colleges that focus on social justice.  By assisting a child not…
