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…Continue

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…Continue
I'm too sad to leave for Korea soon. I'll miss IIT and T/MC.I was learning many things by internship.
Especially, I had knowledge about system of volunteer organization.
Although there are many volunteer organizations in Korea, it's different from Tutor/Mentor Connection.
First, volunteer organizations located in Korea didn't build a database as I know. To keep managning and increasing association, it's very important to maintain a…Continue
I have worked at Tutor/Mentor Connection for six weeks where is a non-profit organization for anyone who wants to help inner city youth connect with extra adult tutors and mentors.

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…Continue
When I came here for work as a intern, I was a little bit confused because all things in here were not familiar and all things I do look like awkward. However, the more time I spent here, everything in here was getting comfortable. Through this internship, I learned lots of things. First of all, I learned how to working process going in America. My initial purpose of coming here is to get to know America’s culture. At this aspect, I think I achieve that. Secondly, by working here,…Continue

I saw the article about infographic on blog.
I think Infograpic is very useful.
Because in traditional way to represent information, data was usually expressed by a variety of numeric and text-only.

This is a volunteer-recruitment video created by Minsub Lee, and intern from Korea working with the Tutor/Mentor Connection.

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…Continue
