I network and share ideas with many people in many forums. One is the Smart Communities forum hosted by the Pew Partnership for Civic Change. Today, there is an article showing the role of Hospitals as leaders of economic change. Read more at http://smartcommunities.typepad.com/suzanne/2008/02/hospitals-as-ec...
One of the T/MC goals is to enlist hospital, business and professional leaders as owners of the T/MC strategy, using their own leadership and resources to help build and sustain comprehensive, volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs in areas where there is high poverty and where a business, university, church or hospital has a facility, or where their members or employees live.
Such leadership can start in any city, and connect via forums like this, or via workshops at the May and November Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference
If you know people who already take this role, please connect them to the T/MC via the conferences of this forum.
