Sam,  the four part strategy of the Tutor/Mentor Connection shows that step #1 is collecting information. The articles that you have been illustrating are part of the information we collect.  Step #2 is an effort to dramatically increase the number of people who look at the information. As you and Minsub and other interns do new interpretations, we provide different ways to encourage people you know, and people who see these, to look at our information.  Step #3 is focused on helping people understand the information. This is more difficult because there is so much information and many people don't have a frame of reference (they have not led a tutor/mentor program, they don't live in poverty, etc.)


I created this graphic many years ago to show the role people can take to encourage people they know to look at the information, form learning groups to discuss and build understanding of the information, then act, using the information, as a volunteer, donor, leader or policy maker, to help tutor/mentor programs grow in one or more poverty neighborhoods.   


I created a second graphic, which is labled "B" on the handout I've given you. This is intended to show how groups of people with a common background, can begin to discuss the T/MC ideas, and begin to brainstorm ways their group can support one, or more tutor/mentor programs. For instance a group of technology people could be discussing ways to provide computers, web sites and tech support to all program. A group of doctors could be talking of ways tutor/mentor programs can be built around inner city hospitals. Alumni of a  university can talk of ways alumni in a city could be volunteers, donors, leaders at different programs.


I'd like you to create a new graphic interpretation for the graphic I've posted (which is labled A in the handout) and for the second graphic, Labled B.  I look forward to seeing your work.
