If we can give public recognition to the good work done by different businesses, non profits, political leaders to help social sector organizations grow, we can stimulate competition and constant improvement in what is done to help sustain the work and constant improvement of social sector organizations over multiple years. Do you agree with this concept? This has been the Tutor/Mentor Connection strategy since 1993. View the presentation and see how the T/MC web library can be used.

  3. 3. Role of Intermediary The Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC* ideas are based on strategies big companies use to draw customers to stores in hundreds of locations. Bassill believes that if volunteers, donors, philanthropists are more proactive in what they do to assure that tutor/mentor programs have talent, ideas and dollars to constantly improve and stay connected to youth and communities for many years, more will have an impact on mentoring youth through school and into careers. *The Tutor/Mentor Connection (T/MC), created in 1993, is now led by Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC.

  4. 4. How can “ideas” influence actions? If we have access to more ideas showing what other people do to solve a problem we have more ways to solve the same problem where we are. If we give attention to actions taken by some people to solve a problem in one places, we can encourage others to duplicate that action to solve the same problem in many places. Daniel F.

  7. 7. If a good idea, or ‘best practice’ is given public attention it motivates others to copy the idea.

  9. 9. If we can give attention to best practices, we can influence the growth of business support for ALL of the tutor/mentor programs in a city. The “best practice” recognized one year becomes the standard others try to beat the following year through a process of constant innovation. We want to encourage a volunteers from every industry to be part of tutor/mentor programs in every part of the city. Think of the “carrot” as best practice of how business encourages employees to volunteer or donate. Or how non profits improve practices from year to year.

Libraries that collect great ideas can be a resource for constant innovation and improvement in an entire sector of organizations. Think of year-to-year improvement like a dog race where every dog want to be #1 If we build libraries of best practices these can be used by teams from non-profits, businesses, foundations, universities, etc. to innovate ways to be the “best” at what they do each year.

  18. 18. Discussion • What type of organization and funding does it take to collect, organize and analyze this much information? • What type of advertising/Public Awareness strategies are needed to bring millions of people to these ideas every year? • Who can this work and responsibility be shared/owned by many institutions and organizations? • Where are benefactors/philanthropists who would put their names, and their money, behind this strategy? • How can we use social media effectively to support this information collection and sharing process? • What values does this offer to business that would motivate them to invest corporate dollars to support the strategy and engage their own employees, technology and facilities? • Who else is building similar libraries, for the same purposes? Where is this being discussed? How can we connect?
