I encourage you to visit and view a flash presentation about the Tutor/Mentor Conference, which was created for my organization by two student interns from Korea. This does a great job of showcasing the conference and drawing attention to some of the tutor/mentor programs who participate on panels and delivered workshops. It also illustrates our use of maps. This is work that could be done by high school and college students and business volunteers. They don't even need to be located in the same city or country as the charity. Pass this message and example on to others. If we can unleash this type of talent we can all be more effective in reaching and helping kids.

I attended the conference from May.29 to 30 in Northwestern University Law school in downtown. I felt honored to attend this conference because anybody can not have this chance like me.I was anxious because I should meet someone who attended at this conference. But they were very kind and so sweet to us, when I told something they were patient even though I could speak english very well.I was amazed to see their passion, they explained something deal by their company or organization.I was interested in volunteer from when I was in Korea, but in Korea, I think the activities of voluteering, tutoring are not big issue better than USA.The scale of this activity is not big in Korea, I thought Korea government and organization have to follow the example of USA. On other side, I felt pity about situation that has a problem between racial and poverty. I could see the graph present about the component ratio of education by area and religion something like that. I think this problem is the most important problem can not be solved easily in USA. Out of sight the United State of America is best country.Unlike that, USA has a lot of problem. I think the USA has to solve this problem are the gap between the wealthy and the poor, the racial problem and the education problem to make better country. I hope you have a understanding , it is just my opinion.But to solve the this problem, there were many people in there for 2 days. I want to applaud to them who work everyday for the weak person. As many as there are many people, the world wil be more great and peaceful.

May 29- 30, 2008I attend to the conference for 2days. I had attended 3 conferences while I was in the work shop.The first one was the "panal of tutor/Mentor program Leaders share strategies, challenges of different program"There were lots of people from other countries. hearing peoples opinion,they had a great feeling about the volunteers and the donors. They had talked that showing the outcome of the student will help the people who wantes to donate to the T/MC. like showing the GPA of the university or the measurement of somthing they had achieved with their donation.the second conference that I had attended was "Tutoring/Mentoring Networking and Collaboration in South-Southwest Suburbs of Chicago". This conference was especially for the male. the presentation they had shown told me the graduation of male was lower than the females. It needs more program about the male. Especially in south-southwest Surburbs of Chicago. They had found that men of color has difficult to express themselves by saying like "I need help, I am Sorry, I need love".So they had made some program for them and achieved a great success.The third conference I had attend was "Discussion of mentoring and Tutoring Strategies within a YMCA, Boys & Girls club or youth center". In this conference they had talked about to thing big.We need to look other thing not only one thing of the person. Without wearing colored glasses we need to find out the students telent and make it.Finally, as I thought about the conference, It was a great experience. I had talked a lot with people. I was glad they had interested in Korea and asked lot of question through the break time. All the person that had attend had an open heart. So I could get near to them. And I got much more understood with the Tutor/mentoring program.
