Come See Me Present My Maps!

I will be presenting and discussing my maps THIS FRIDAY at the 2009 Spring Tutor/Mentor Conference at the Northwestern University School Of Law, downtown Chicago. I will be presenting with Dan Bassill, president of Tutor/Mentor Connection, and community leader/organizer for over 30 years.

Using Maps to Create Collaborative Strategies.
Friday, May 29, 10:10 am - 11:10 am

Presented by Daniel Bassill, President
Mike Trakan, GIS Map Developer, of Tutor/Mentor Connection

Bassill and Trakan will overview collaboration strategies and uses of maps to draw volunteers and donors to different neighborhoods of a city, and to all tutor/mentor programs in each neighborhood. The speaker will also show how Google Maps can be used to locate potential business, church and civic partners in the same neighborhood of tutor/mentor programs.

This map shows areas of high poverty in Chicago, and locations of organizations
who were part of the November 2008 conference.

In addition to my presentation on my mapping tools, which are created to help community leaders build and sustain non school tutoring/mentoring facilities for students living in high-poverty neighborhoods...
(AND which look awesome, and will provoke questions and discussion...)

There will be workshops on non-profit planning, evaluation, recruitment and training, marketing and development. The focus will be on tutoring and mentoring of course, so if you are at all interested in learning more about these programs please join us. But there are networking and learning opportunities for anyone interested in community/social work... oh and did I mention the MAPS?!
