Chicago's Baha'i, Buddhist, Hindu, and Muslim Faith Groups
Continuing to look at the Tutor/Mentor Institute's document,"How Faith Communities Can Lead Volunteer Mobilization For Tutor/Mentor Programs"...
Up to this point, I've looked at the locations of known Jewish Congregations and Christian Churches. Of course, there are many in the Chicago area who adhere to faiths that are neither Christian nor Jewish. Followers of the Baha'i, Buddhist, Hindu, and Muslim faiths are also in strong positions to take leadership roles and "point members to tutor/mentor programs that already exist, or to neighborhoods, where new programs need to be created."
Again, please take a look at the blog entry for Chicago's Places of Worship for more information on how this can happen, why it's so important, and how all faith communities - regardless of denomination or belief - can use the T/MC's strategies to increase the reach, frequency and consistency of tutoring and mentoring programs.
Pay a visit to the T/MC website to get information about T/M programs in all parts of the region.
And, go to the T/MC Program Locator, or the Interactive Zip Code Map to find locations of programs that can use your volunteer or donor help.
