Mentor Kenosha Racine wins Stimulus Grant

Just received an email from Mark Gesner at University of Wisconsin Parkside saying "It is with great excitement that I write to inform you that Mentor Kenosha & Racine (MKR) has been awarded a three-year $497,651 grant from the United States Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP). The grant supports MKR efforts to provide mentoring services for middle school students in the Racine and Kenosha Unified School Districts. " Read more.

The list of winners for other states can be seen at

Mark and his team have taken part in the Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conferences for the past couple of years. You can find the workshop they presented in the agenda from the May 2009 conference.

The next conference is November 19 and 20, 2009 and we hope that others who want to learn how to win grants, and build great tutor/mentor programs will attend and share your own ideas and strategies.
