Mike Trakan wrote a new article on his blog to explain how others can use our maps to help tutor/mentor programs grow in different parts of Chicago.
The map above is of the Woodlawn community area in Chicago. I created this to help the local schools and community leaders develop a strategy that would make volunteer-based tutoring/mentoring programs available to more kids in this area. At this point, we don't know of many non-school tutor/mentor programs in this area, and our database does not yet include school-based programs.
Thus, if you're in the area and know of non-school programs, please add them to the database at http://www.tutormentorprogramlocator.net/prgloc.aspx
Here's a pdf tutorial showing how to add or update information.
We're trying to find donors to help us continue to fund this service. If you can help visit this link and make a donation or give us a call at 312-492-9614.
