T/M Conference May 27-28: Come See Me Present My Maps!

It's that time of year again... At the end of this month, Tutor/Mentor Connection will host its first of two annual conferences at Loyola University's Rogers Park campus.

The conferences bring tutor/mentor professionals together with members of the media, and political/faith/business/community leaders (like you!) who wish to share ideas and explore tutoring/mentoring as a part of any comprehensive attack on poverty, crime, inadequate education for our youth, and the associated tax burdens that eventually fall in all our laps.

Come join us May 27 and 28 at the May Tutor/Mentor Conference! In fact...

On Thursday May 27th, 2010, I will host a workshop, explaining how maps like to one at the left can help draw attention and resources to tutor/mentor programs in neighborhoods where more are needed. 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 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.

If you cannot join us, please consider helping us raise scholarships for students and other future leaders who cannot afford the admission.
