On November 21, we'll be hosting the 30th Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference since 1994. Our vision is to put President-Elect Barack Obam's call for service and sacrifice into action, by helping people become involved in volunteer-based tutoring/mentoring programs connecting inner city kids with lifelines to high school graduation, college, jobs and careers.
You can see from the photo, that President-elect Obama attended a previous conference in May 1999, where he presented best practice awards and Lend A Hand grants. We hope he or his wife will attend again in the future, and adopt the Tutor/Mentor Connection strategy in some of their own mobilization and leadership efforts.
Nicole White is organizing the conference for the T/MC and is using her blog to profile some of the panels and the programs who will be participating.
