This May 2015 story shows the 20 most dangerous cities in America, and includes a map of each city showing the highest crime areas in each city. While Chicago gets a huge mount of media attention for it's violence, it is not on the list of top 20.
I've shared information about the Tutor/Mentor Connection with people in cities on this list, starting in the mid 1990s, with the goal that other cities adopt the T/MC strategy. These include Rockford, Milwaukee, Detroit and Indianapolis.
Between 2000 and 2004 I developed a relationship with leaders at IUPUI in Indianapolis, that aimed to fully duplicate the T/MC in that city. IUPUI never found the money to do that, but a show of their commitment was the hosting of an on-line conference (2004 or 2005) to parallel a Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference in Chicago, and the rebuilding of the http://www.tutormentorconnection.org web site in 2005 by members of their technology department.
This strategy is still available to these and other cities. You can browse through my web sites and borrow the ideas. You can assign student research teams to dig into the sites and report what I'm doing that could be duplicated. You could hire me as a consultant.
You can do all three.
