Using the Ning Network

This graphic is part of a flash animation created to illustrate the year-round event cycle, and strategy of the Tutor/Mentor Connection. It was created by two interns from Korea who were with Cabrini Connections, Tutor/Mentor Connection for six weeks in Jan/Feb. 2010. You can read more about this in this blog article.

These interns and other volunteers are connected to each other in the Tutor/Mentor Connection Ning group. This is more than Facebook. It's a planning and collaboration space. If you browse the groups you can see how I'm able to coach the work each volunteer is doing, and how they are beginning to network and share ideas with each other.

You can review work done over the past few years, and you can follow work being done right now. You can add your own ideas, or you can borrow these ideas to help you in your own program, or your own community or country.

If you appreciate what the Tutor/Mentor Connection is offering, I hope you'll take a moment to vote for us in the Pepsi Refresh Project. You can help us get funding for an entire year! This means we'll be able to do more of this type of work and bring more attention and support to tutor/mentor programs in many places.
