Tutor/Mentor Connection/Institute, LLC hosted Leadership and Networking Conference in Chicago every six months from May 1994 to May 2015. Conferences have not been held since due to lack of financial support, but we continue to attempt to engage people in on-line networking and idea sharing using social media and forums like this.
Location: Chicago, IL
Latest Activity: Jun 28, 2016
This map outlines the information and ideas the Tutor/Mentor Connection and Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC have collected over the past 20 years. We have shared this via web sites, blogs and social media. In addition, every six months since May of 1994 we've hosted a conference in Chicago to invite people in our network and involved in building, operating, sustaining and participating in volunteer-based tutoring and/or mentoring programs to come together to share ideas, build relationships and innovate ways to draw resources to each of us so we can all do our work better each year. Visit the web site and see more about the conference. Join the discussion here and help shape what happens, and what you can get out of it.
While we hope to continue face-to-face events, more people can be connected to each other and these ideas via on-line networking and learning. I encourage you to embed this Debategraph into your own blog or web site. Encourage your students, volunteers, donors and leaders to add their own ideas. Then work with us to engage more people in using this information to help kids living in economically disadvantaged areas.
The most recent conference was May 8, 2015 at the Metcalfe Federal Building in Chicago. There has not been a formal conference since then, due to lack of funds. However, with your help we can use this space to bring more people to these ideas and focus on actions that help tutor/mentor programs grow in the coming school year.

As you know, I send out a monthly email newsletter with ideas I hope people use to build and sustain tutor/mentor programs in Chicago and other cities. This is the Feb issue. http://tutormentorconference.org/newsletters/TMI_feb2015.htm
This is really a study guide, for people to do deeper learning to understand where well organized youth serving programs are most needed, as well as how to build and sustain a flow of resources to help each program constantly improve.
I've been hosting a Tutor/Mentor Conference in Chicago every six months since May 1994. The next is May 8 at the Metcalfe Federal Building in Chicago, where I’ve held the past few conferences.
If you're in the Chicago region, and would you be interested in organizing a workshop, the web site is http://www.tutormentorconference.org/present.asp
If you're not in the Chicago region, continue to connect and share ideas via social media and this forum. I’ll look forward to hearing from you.
