Here's a recent article about why at-risk city youth are your problem whether you live in the city or not.
And don't miss Dan Bassill's articles this week about how tutor/mentor programs (or lack of programs) might relate to teen violence and shootings. And another about how YOU can respond and help us work toward stopping the violence.
What does all this have to do with the maps I make for Tutor/Mentor Connection?
Stop by the May Tutor/Mentor Conference next Thursday afternoon, May 27th, 2010 at Loyola University to attend my workshop and learn more about our mapping technologies... technologies and data available to anyone who wants to help draw attention and resources to tutor/mentor programs in neighborhoods where students need a little more help to prepare for fruitful careers, versus the streets.
I will also show how local programs, youth groups, students in service-learning classes, journalists with local media, and YOU can create your own maps using our free online program locator. Come with one or two addresses that you would like to map, and you'll leave knowing how anyone can create a blog article and map for justice.
