Staying the course

Below is a page from one of the essays on the Tutor/Mentor Institute web site, which is one of several web sites where I share information.

In a letter I sent to a potential donor in March 1994 I wrote…

“T/MC is a network that will inventory every community in Chicago to identify tutoring/mentoring programs. Then we will continuously promote the need for tutoring and mentoring and volunteer involvement so that more programs become available in each coming year. We will provide a means of sharing successful strategies among new and existing programs and will identify and focus public attention --on a continuing basis--on the areas where tutoring services are most needed.”

This essay shows some of what we've done to keep this commitment over the past 16 years. This report shows impact since 2000 from the Cabrini Connections program we lead, and from the Tutor/Mentor Connection.

This chart shows growth of web traffic to our sites since 2000. This enables people from through the Chicago region, or the world, to use the information we collect and share.

The cost to recreate what we have spent 16 years building would be far more than what it takes to maintain this information base from year to year. If you would like to become a benefactor or sponsor and share the credit for this resource, please contact me or use this form to send a donation.
