Chicago's Places of Worship

(click on the map above to see "full-sized" version)

The Tutor/Mentor Institute has a document called "How Faith Communities Can Lead Volunteer Mobilization For Tutor/Mentor Programs."

The document provides Tutor/Mentor Connection (T/MC) strategies for helping "faith groups develop evangelism strategies which would lead to a more active, and strategic, role of every church in every faith group in helping inner city kids be part of total quality, comprehensive one-on-one tutor/mentor programs."

Ideally, "churches in affluent suburban areas, as well as in inner city areas, will be delivering sermons on a regular basis, that tie scripture and service, and point members to tutor/mentor programs that already exist, or to neighborhoods, where new programs need to be created."

Because "getting faith communities to present a 'tutor/mentor message' at least four times a year, in their sermons, newsletters, and web sites, can dramatically increase the reach, frequency and consistency of our call for help. "

Please visit the T/MC website to get information about programs in all parts of the region.

And as always, please take a look at the T/MC Program Locator, or the Interactive Zip Code Map to find locations of programs that can use your volunteer or donor help.
