Chicago Community Areas: Youth In Poverty-2018

757 views

Published on

This presentation shows number of high poverty youth age 6 to 17 in each Chicago community area. Originally created in 2011 and updated in 2018 you can now see changes in this number since 2011.

Non school tutor/mentor programs and supporters can use this poverty data to make a case for funding of volunteer-based tutor and/or mentoring programs in different community areas of Chicago. Community groups need to form in every part of the city to help collect information about existing non-school tutor and mentor programs, help existing programs get needed resources, and help new programs start where more are needed.

  19. 19. Use these Maps to understand where tutor/mentor programs are most needed throughout city. Educate donors, volunteers and leaders so they are actively looking for ways to distribute needed resources into the neighborhoods where the numbers show these programs are most needed. Also use maps to Improve flow of needed operating resources to tutor/mentor programs. Read more. See the ideas shared at http://tutormentor.blogspot.com @ Copywrite Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC, 2013 Contact: tutormentor2@earthlink.net Pg. 19 This will help improve distribution of K-12, volunteer-based, non-school, Tutor/Mentor Programs in high poverty areas.

It is also showing businesses and other assets in Austin and Oak Park area which could be helping programs grow, in addition to expressways that bring potential volunteers and donors through the neighborhood every day. 6356 34.6% @ Copywrite Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC, 2013 Contact: tutormentor2@earthlink.net Pg. 20 7127 42%
  21. 21. An organized, volunteer-based tutor and/or mentor program is a place in a neighborhood where kids and volunteers from various backgounds and work experience meet on a regular basis. In some programs youth and volunteers stay involved for many years. This map shows locations of non-school youth serving organizations in the Chicago region who include volunteer based tutoring and/or mentoring in some way in their program design. They are all different, so you need to view web sites to shop and compare. There are not enough programs to serve the 200,000+ youth living in high poverty areas of the Chicago region.. Find map at https://mappingforjustice.blogspot.com/2016/02/ updated-map-showing-locations-of.html Pg. 21
  22. 22. Groups need to be working in every high poverty community area to identify existing programs, help new programs grow where more are needed, and provide on-going resources to help each program become the best it can be. Pg. 22
  23. 23. Form a study group in your business, faith group, college, high school and/or alumni group. Use this information and other resources on the Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC web sites to help you support the growth of existing programs and form new ones where more are needed. @ Copywrite Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC, 2013 Contact: tutormentor2@earthlink.net Pg. 23 Hold conversations in face-to-face settings and in on- line spaces, such as Twitter chats. Invite Dan Bassill, to participate and help you understand these ideas.
  24. 24. Educate Donors, Leaders Maps and other data can show where non-school tutor/mentor programs are most needed and where existing programs operate. Maps can also show what companies have business locations in different community areas and what philanthropic organizations provide funds to organizations focused on youth well-being. The can also show anchor institutions like hospitals, colleges, faith groups. And they can show political districts. The maps on the previous pages were created using the Chicago Tutor/Mentor Program Locator Interactive map, http://www.tutormentorprogramlocator.net These maps show the number of youth age 6 to 17 in each community area of Chicago who are below the poverty level. Thus, if there are 2,000 youth living below poverty, that means there would need to be 40 youth tutoring/mentoring programs each enrolling 50 youth to reach 100% of that number. The Tutor/Mentor Connection (Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC) has been collecting information showing non-school tutor/mentor programs in Chicago since 1993, breaking this down by age group served and type of program. The green stars on the following maps show locations of existing site based programs. Groups with community based mentoring could map addresses of clients to generate a similar analysis.

  25. 25. Educating Donors, Leaders, pg. 2 Use your web site as your grant proposal. If each organization offering tutoring/mentoring will show on its web site how many youth and volunteers are on its active roster, and what type of tutor/mentor service they offer, as well as what age group they serve, this information can be aggregated to show how many youth in a community area are being served. Thus, if you look at the map showing West Ridge, on the far North side of Chicago, you’d find only one tutor/mentor organization, yet in 2011 there were 3,191 youth between the age of 6 and 17 living below poverty level. That number has increased to 4,218 in 2018!. Using the interactive tutor/mentor program locator* you can add layers, showing poorly performing schools, and you can refine the list of programs to show specific age groups. This information shows a clear need for non-school youth supports, including volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs in the area, based on poverty levels. Donors should be willing to support the existing organizations and provide funds to help them constantly learn from others and improve what they do so each might be considered “best” in what it does to help youth and volunteers connect and stay connected. *Note: Since 2013 the Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC has not had the resources to update the Program Locator. Help is needed. @ Copywrite Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC, 2013 Contact: tutormentor2@earthlink.net Pg. 25
  26. 26. Educating Donors, Leaders, pg 3 Leaders, volunteers, youth and parents in the neighborhood can use this information and quarterly events, such as those offered between 1994 and 2015, by the Tutor/Mentor Connection, to reach out to potential resource providers and leaders who have facilities in the community area to educate them a) why tutor/mentor programs are needed and, b) ways they can be consistently engaged in supporting the growth of mentor-rich programs in each community area. Connect city-wide and nation-wide. While such groups can meet at the neighborhood level this only engages a few people. Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC advocates for planning groups, program leaders and volunteers connect with each other in on-line spaces, such as social media. In doing so, they can also connect with other stakeholders from different parts of the Chicago region, and with others from other cities throughout the country, creating a greater level of idea-sharing and program support along with a greater public awareness that supports the on-going effort of each program in every high poverty neighborhood. @ Copywrite Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC, 2013 Contact: tutormentor2@earthlink.net Pg. 26
  27. 27. Through this process we educate leaders who use their visibility to help increase the flow and distribution of resources needed for ALL tutor/mentor programs in a region to operate. If leaders are seeking tutor/mentor programs based on where they are needed, based on number of youth living in poverty, the choices of who they support are limited by who operates a program serving youth in that neighborhood. Can we educate more donors to look at your web site, see where you are, who you serve, and what you do, then decide how much and in what ways they want to help you? @ Copywrite Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC, 2013 Contact: tutormentor2@earthlink.net Pg. 27
  28. 28. Let’s find ways to connect and talk about this. At the following Tutor/Mentor Institute and Tutor/Mentor Connection web sites you can see how we put these ideas to practice every day in our effort to support the growth of well-organized, on-going, volunteer-based tutor, mentor and learning programs in high poverty areas of Chicago and other cities.
