Leadership from Pro Basketball Team

I've written a series of articles showing how sports teams can mobilize volunteers and donors to support tutor/mentor programs in all parts of Chicago.

This video by the NBA Memphis Grizzlies Foundation is a fantastic example of how a sports team can promote mentoring.

I hope to work with college and pro teams in Chicago to help them create videos like this and add into them a "chalk talk" where they show how others need to take on roles that support mentoring programs in different neighborhoods, just like the front office, boosters, fans and owners support college and pro teams.

If you're with a team in Chicago or another city and want to help develop this strategy please contact me.
