Holiday Tutor Mentor Bloggers Wanted

On Nov. 30 the Tutor/Mentor Connection will host a one-day conference in Chicago to draw leaders and supporters of volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs together, and to create visibility that helps draw needed donations to tutor/mentor programs in Chicago and other cities. You can read about the conference at

I'm writing to recruit bloggers who are talking about charity, and volunteerism, and programs that connect adults with inner-city kids in roles of tutors, mentors, advocates, coaches and friends. If we can increase the number of people around the world blogging this topic, and pointing to sites such as the Program Links area of, we can increase holiday donations and give donors choices of where they send those donations.

If you're blogging this topic, just post a comment in this section with your blog's web address. If you are aggregating charity blogs, I encourage you to create a sub section that points at non profits that connect adults and youth who do not live in poverty with youth and communities that are dominated by poverty.

I'll look forward to reading your posts.
