New Map Gallery

I encourage you to visit the Tutor/Mentor Connection Map Gallery which has been completely rebuilt by Jim Cory, a volunteer based in Madison, Wisconsin, who I met several years ago in an internet discussion hosted by the World Bank.

Jim's long-term involvement illustrates the way volunteers can use their talent to help non profits with important work. It also illustrates that volunteers don't need to be in your own neighborhood, to help.

We'll be updating all of the maps in the Map Gallery and adding new maps, thanks to work being done in our office by Mike Traken, a GIS intern. You can follow Mike's progress on the blog.

Read previous articles on maps and leadership to see how we hope these maps are used to build a better distribution of high quality tutor/mentor programs in all poverty neighborhoods of big cities like Chicago.
