Enough is Enough. Do the Planning. Build the Network.

It's time for New Year's Resolutions. I resolve to continue sharing ideas and encouraging others to use information available through the Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC website.  I hope others read some of what I share and that you'll spend some time thinking about how your actions might lead to a world with less need to send men and women to fight on foreign soil, or to fight in our own streets and neighborhoods.

I created this Enough is Enough message in 2007. It shows actions people can take to help solve problems we face locally and globally.  The video below is from this 2007 blog article.

I repeated the ENOUGH message again in this 2008 article. Then again in this 2010 article.  Again in this 2012 article.

Again in 2015 article.

Chicago Sun-Times 1992
Again with this 2016 article.

Now as we head into 2020 and a new decade.

Anyone who looks at a media story like this can dig up one of these "Enough is Enough" articles and share it with friends, family, co-workers, faith network, college and more.

Until more people take these steps we'll keep seeing these stories.

Resolve to spend some time weekly in 2020 to take a look and share with others.

teams needed in many places

The primary purpose of the information I'm sharing continues to be to help teams of people grow in thousands of places. Such teams will use their time, talent and dollars to help long-term, mentor-rich non-school programs grow in every high poverty location in Chicago, it's suburbs, and other cities.  These programs will seek to constantly learn from each other, in efforts to help kids move through school and into adult lives.

put yourself in the blue box 
You can use this concept map to frame your commitment. Just put your photo and/or company logo in the blue box at the top. The rest can remain the same, since it shows a commitment, and set of actions, to help youth in poverty move through school and into adult lives. 

I started the Tutor/Mentor Connection in 1993 and launched it in January 1994--- 25 years ago!  I created Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC in 2011 to provide a structure in which I could continue to keep the T/MC available.  I continue to seek contributions from others to  help fund my efforts.
