Tutor/Mentor Connection

Connect knowledge, volunteers, youth and make a difference.

While waiting for call backs from various individuals, I did some research regarding tutor/mentor programs, fundraising, and volunteer training/retention methods that may have a proven track record.  Through my searches, I recalled a website that I was introduced to in my Community Psych class, and within it, there is a host of information regarding any and all community related topics.  While reading through much of it, I was reminded as to how important it is for websites such as this one and the tutor/mentor website are to community advocacy and improvement work, as these ideas need to be shared with as many people as possible.  Websites that host tons of information save a lot of time and hassle for individuals looking to make a change, as there is no need to "reinvent the wheel", since there is information available that shows what others have done and what was successful.  The next step to collecting all of this information is to put it to practical use, such as this tool demonstrates.  Sharing ideas and helping each other through guidance and resource sharing between programs is key for second-order change to occur in a societal system that has been fundamentally flawed for a long time.

I think that we create tremendous value by aggregating the information we do, and we add another level of value by hosting the database of Chicago tutor/mentor programs. A further level of value is hosting these forums and responding personally to inquiries from people who contact us for information.

 

In coming months we will need to establish a monetary value for this service and find ways to ask users to help share the costs.
