Networking Conference - Starts Thursday

I created this graphic when designing the program for the Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference. It illustrates how each tutor/mentor program is drawing from a network of volunteers, donors, ideas, and peers to support the youth who participate in their own programs.

Bradley Troast, our Public Interest Program Fellow from Northwestern, has posted a list of speakers on his blog. These are some of the people we are connecting to us, and each other. By writing this story on his blog, Bradly is encouraging people in his network to get involved with tutoring/mentoring.

Eric Davis sent an email blast to people in his network today. I posted it here. This is another example of how one of our peers is using his own media to draw people he knows into this network.

Imagine if thousands of people were doing this?

You can follow the conference on Twitter, and connect your own network to the people who will be attending. We're using hash tag #TMC09
