During May and June I'll be co-hosting a variety of on-line forums and a Chicago conference. These will be connecting tutoring and mentoring leaders and supporters with each other, and with local programs who are constantly looking for more volunteers and donors.
Today I'm at http://www.socialedge.org and from May 8-12, I'll be part of a Volunteer Recruitment discussion hosted at http://www.mentoring.org/community.
You can find the full agenda for the Chicago conference and on-line events at http://www.tutormentorconference.bigstep.com
I hope you'll participate, and that you'll invite donors, like Jason who is shown above giving me a donation from his co-workers at Merrill Lynch in Chicago. If we can draw donors into our discussions, my hope is that they will become partners who make sure local programs have all of the resources they need to connect volunteers with kids.
The on-line forums are FREE. I hope I meet you there.
