More effective story telling

A couple of weeks ago I wrote an article about how non profits need to recruit talent from more places to help them be effective in their work.

Gayle C. Thorsen wrote an article about non profit story telling which provides some good advise, but also illustrates how non profits would benefit if others were lending their talent to help them tell their story, build technology strategies, or do more effective tutoring and/or mentoring.

If you're in a journalism school, writing class at the local high school, or in some other program where you're learning to write and communicate, I urge you to consider adopting one or more tutor/mentor programs as the subject matter. If you apply the ideas of Ms. Thorsen you can help the program you adopt be more successful in the work they're trying to do.

Come to the Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference in Chicago on May 28 and 29 and share your strategies, experiences and ideas with others.
