Summer Reading - Where and Why Tutor/Mentor Programs Most Needed

I posted a note on July 13, 2009, showing how our NU PIP fellow Chris Warren has created a concept map to point to the different articles he has written about Cabrini Connections and the Tutor/Mentor Connection in the past year.

The concept map I'm showing here shows a section of the T/MC links library, where you can find articles about poverty, education, mentoring, and other related issues. Our goal is that groups form at colleges, faith groups, senior citizen homes, businesses, etc. who read these articles and discuss them, the same way people read scripture and discuss it. You can find the actual map here. When you click on any of the links, you go to the section of the Tutor/Mentor Connection library with links to web sites that provide that information.

As more learning circles form, and begin to use this information, we'll begin to see more consistent and strategic actions helping kids in poverty stay safe in non-school hours, expand their networks of adult support, and move through school and toward jobs and careers.
