  3. 3. Creating a tutor/mentor program that transforms the lives of youth and adult volunteers is as difficult as creating the first light bulb. Edison made more than 1000 attempts before he developed a working light bulb. Creating an industry to deliver energy so light bulbs could be in every home must have been a much more difficult challenge.Property of Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC, Merchandise Mart PO Box 3303, Chicago, Il. 60654 Email for permission to use: tutormentor2@earthlink.net Pg 3

A volunteer-based tutor/mentor program is a “store” with many customers.Each list represents products and services needed at every tutor/mentor program in every high povertyneighborhood of cities like Chicago.

  6. 6. Skills Needed in Every T/M Program The chart on page 4 shows products and services needed in every single tutor/mentor program.

  7. 7. How Many Programs Needed? How many jobs would this create? Nearly 200 locations are in Tutor/Mentor database. However, the distribution if poor in many parts of the city . Previous surveys lead us to believe less than 20,000 youth in organized programs with primary focus on tutor/mentor activities. Another 300 program locations could reach service level up to 60,000 youth. This could create 3,000 to 6,000 jobs in a non-school tutor/mentor industry.Property of Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC, Merchandise Mart PO Box 3303, Chicago, Il. 60654 Email for permission to use: tutormentor2@earthlink.net Pg 7
