Chicago's Catholic Churches
Continuing to look at the Tutor/Mentor Institute's document,"How Faith Communities Can Lead Volunteer Mobilization For Tutor/Mentor Programs"...
We know of at least 325 Catholic Churches spread throughout the city - in impoverished neighborhoods, as well as more affluent areas. Catholics in more affluent areas can be tying "scripture and service, and pointing members to tutor/mentor programs that already exist, or to neighborhoods, where new programs need to be created."
Please take a look at the blog entry for Chicago's Places of Worship for more information on why this is so important, and how faith communities can use the T/MC's strategies to increase the reach, frequency and consistency of tutoring and mentoring programs.
And as always, please visit the T/MC website to get information about programs in all parts of the region. And then head 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.
