Network Building - Your role

If you want to help improve schools, reduce violence, close the gaps between rich and poor, one step you can always take is that of a "network builder".

This graphic illustrates how you can point to a Tutor/Mentor Connection blog article, or a page on our web site, or a map showing locations of other tutor/mentor programs in the Chicago region. You can do this once a day, or once a week.

You can do this by posting an update on Facebook, or linked in, or by delivering a sermon from your church or synagogue. You can do this by posting a notice on a company web site, or putting a message in a print advertising message.

If enough people do this every day we can build an army of every-day support, that reaches tutor/mentor programs in most of the high poverty neighborhoods of Chicago.

Don't wait for someone else to take this role. It's one that any one of us can take every day.

Visit this page on the Tutor/Mentor Institute web site and play the animated presentations that give you more ideas of ways you can become a leader in this movement.
