Building Planning Teams to Support Youth Tutor, Mentor & Learning Programs

  1. 1. Reaching youth in all high poverty areas of a city. This presentation describes a strategy that groups of people from the same company, industry, faith group and/or from national organizations like Teach For America, can adopt, as part of their OWN commitment to help kids in poverty areas move successfully through school into adult lives, jobs and responsibilities. *Since 2011 Tutor/Mentor Connection has been operated as part of Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC See ideas and mission at http://www.tutormentorexchange.net Connect on Twitter @tutormentorteam Email tutormentor2@earthlink.ne This is a Tutor/Mentor Connection* strategy presentation:
  2. 2. Since 1993 Tutor/Mentor Connection has shared idea that youth in high poverty areas need an expanded network of support that can be provided by volunteers from many industries, who connect with youth in organized, on-going, volunteer based tutoring and mentoring programs. Tutor/Mentor Connection; Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC – http://www.tutormentorexchange.net tutormentor2@earthlink.net The arrows connecting each spoke to the hub point in both directions. This means that volunteers learn from their involvement while sharing their own experiences and talent with youth and tutor/mentor programs. Pg 2
  3. 3. Well-organized programs are needed in every high-poverty neighborhood, supported by talent from many sectors. Volunteers from a single industry could be part of every team. Pg 2 Pg 3
  4. 4. What tutor and/or mentor programs already exist in a geographic region? This map shows locations, and number, of tutor and mentor programs in different parts of the Chicago area. The Tutor/Mentor Connection has been maintaining this list since 1993, and sharing it in efforts to draw needed resources to every program, so each can constantly learn and improve. See map and list of programs in article at http://mappingforjustice.blogspot.com/ 2016/02/updated-map-showing-locations-of.html How do we enlist teams from different industries, faith groups, etc. to support ALL of the programs in the region, or in parts of the region? Pg 4
  5. 5. Think about the infrastructure needed at every youth serving organization shown on T/MC maps. View this video at https://youtu.be/2uKxWK2q3RY Pg 5
  6. 6. Each of these boxes represent INDUSTRIES who need to be involved in this strategy. Birth Career Family Support Youth Development Religion, Ethics Arts, Culture A child living in poverty Higher Education Law, Justice Students join a Tutor/Mentor Program between 1st and 12th grade. Technology Finance, Insurance Until we put names of individuals or organizations in each box, we won’t have the leadership needed to mobilize volunteers and donors who go from an industry out to all tutor/mentor programs in a big city like Chicago. Science, Engineering Retail, Wholesale Health, Wellness Hospitality, Entertainment Manufacturing Communications With the help of volunteers and structured programs, they finish high school With the help of mentors, they start jobs and careers.

  7. 7. This map shows Rotary Club Locations in Chicago Region: http://rotarydistrict6450.clubexpress.com/content.aspx?page_id=225&club_id=931079 If a company, faith group, alumni or professional association has members throughout city, those members could be part of tutor/mentor programs in many different locations. Resources: Tutor/Mentor Program Locator- http://www.tutormentorprogramlocator.net Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC – http://www.tutormentorexchange.net I've put circles around locations where non-school tutor/mentor programs are located, or where more are needed. This analysis is part of a planning process groups need to go through, to try to engage members at a broad range of tutor/mentor programs in the city and suburbs. Pg 7
  8. 8. North Chicago Elgin Naperville Olympia Fields A team of volunteers could be doing analysis to show where its members are involved, and to promote further involvement in under-served areas. Maps could be created to show where members of a group are involved as volunteers and/or board members of different Tutor/Mentor Programs. Pg 9
  9. 9. In areas where your members are involved, you can lead efforts to engage other community assets.. At each place where your members are involved you can share ideas and do work that draws other resources to your program, or to other programs in your part of the city. Pg 8
  10. 10. Create learning circles where members who are engaged with different youth organizations share their stories, such as what they did, what happened, what works, what does not work. This on-going experience sharing results in ideas from one place being shared at other places..... ...and can lead to strategies that improve quality and flow of resources to programs in all parts of the city. Pg 10
  11. 11. Leaders from different sectors could borrow ideas from groups like Connected Learning MOOC, for ways to connect members involved in different tutor/mentor programs with each other, as a constant form of learning, sharing and program improvement. What works? What could work better? How can our company, faith group, network, help every program get resources, ideas, dollars, etc. needed to constantly improve?Https://clmooc.com Pg 11
  12. 12. Teams from multiple cities can be connecting and sharing ideas with each other!

Show how members of your business, church, professional group, etc. support programs in multiple locations. Send it to us and we'll add it to collaboration links in T/MC library. Pg 12
  13. 13. In 10 to 15 years your organization could claim responsibility for this result. Pg 13
  14. 14. Who is already doing this type of planning? Who Is doing it well? This cMap shows data indicators/mapping sites. A similar map needs to point to sites showing planning processes that do work described in this presentation. Share links w @tutormentorteam on Twitter. Pg 14
