Year-Round Leadership Needed

While newspaper stories can draw tremendous attention to a problem, they don't work like advertising to draw shoppers to retail stores, fast food outlets, banks and other businesses that have locations in many places.

Since volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs are needed in many parts of Chicago, the Tutor/Mentor Connection has built a strategy aimed to draw volunteers and donors to every tutor/mentor program on a more consistent basis.

Since we don't have big advertising budgets (or a small one) this strategy depends on the ownership by many people and organizations. Take a look at the video then visit the T/MC web site and play this and other videos and animations.

Once you've reviewed this and the animations on the T/MC site, visit the section that shows roles leaders in business, universities, hospitals and faith groups can take to help tutor/mentor programs grow in more places.

These were created by interns who we coach using the Tutor/Mentor Connection forum on Ning. If you'd like to help create projects like this, or re-do these videos with higher quality film-making, please join us.

None of us can do as much working alone as a few of us can do by working together.
