Follow up to shootings in Garfield Park

Bad night in Chicago. 16 shootings, including one where seven people were shot. Nicole White of the Tutor/Mentor Connection wrote about this in her blog, and points to programs, like Circle Urban Ministries, working to combat the reasons kids make choices that lead them to gangs and violence.

Use the Interactive Map of the Tutor/Mentor Program locator and do your own analysis of the availability of volunteer based tutoring and/or mentoring programs in high poverty neighborhoods.

Without more donations from more people in the private sector, there won't be more programs. They may even be less programs. Pick a program and become their financial partner.
