Banks and Tutoring/Mentoring: MB Financial

One of a series of maps, created in 2008, that show how area banks can help themselves by helping tutor/mentor programs, MB Financial:

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

Branches in the North and Northwest part of the city could support tutor/mentor programs in this area, and help encourage volunteers from the suburbs who work at other businesses, to become part of tutor/mentor programs in areas where it has branch banks.

Interestingly, MB Financial has been a sponsor of the annual Cabrini Connections Golf Benefit since 1995. This is a perfect example of how local businesses in the Chicago community area can band together to host workplace fund raising, and other benefits, that support the operations of tutor/mentor programs in areas where they do business, while also supporting the role the Tutor/Mentor Connection takes in creating these maps and encouraging networking and information sharing.

To learn more about the benefits of volunteer involvement for businesses, and how tutoring and mentoring can assist workforce development, please take a look at the following Tutor/Mentor Institute document.

And for more information on why tutoring and mentoring makes sense in general, please read this document.
