Planning needed following violence in Chicago

  1. 1. Violence in Chicago: 2021 – What's Missing? The Planning. This presentation is property of Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC - http://www.tutormentorexchange.net on Twitter @tutormentorteam
  2. 2. Homicides and shootings have spiked in Chicago and other cities during 2021. The Chicago SunTimes hosts information showing the 15 most violence community areas The headline on that page is shown below. Visit the page at https://graphics.suntimes.com/priority-communities/ On this site you will find profiles of the 15 Chicago community areas that “account for about 50% of the gun violence in the city” (quote from website). The Tutor/Mentor Connection/Institute, LLC (1993-present) started collecting information about volunteer-based tutor and/or mentor programs that operated during non-school hours and plotting this information in maps, beginning in 1993. Our goal was that leaders would use this information to determine if there were enough programs in specific neighborhoods, and ways they could support existing programs, while helping new ones form where needed.

  3. 3. Graphics like this visualize the goal that teams of people, with various talents, need to be helping mentor-rich, non-school programs be available to k-12 kids in every high poverty area of Chicago. Every time Chicago has a surge in violence parents and community leaders call for more non-school programs. The Tutor/Mentor Connection/Institute, LLC (T/MI) has been plotting locations of programs in its Directory since 1993. The current map can be found at https://tinyurl.com/TMI- ChicagoProgramsMap How many programs are needed? The T/MI created this pdf in 2011 and updated it in 2018 to show the number of high poverty youth, age 6-17, living in every Chicago community area. View it at: - http://tinyurl.com/TMI- communityareamaps This presentation is property of Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC - http://www.tutormentorexchange.net on Twitter @tutormentorteam Pg 3
  4. 4. How Many Youth in Poverty? On each map, the top number is the number of youth between age 6 and 17 living below the poverty level. The second number is the percent of total youth in that age group who live in that community area. Thus, North Lawndale has about 7,000 total youth between age 6 and 17. 4178 61% On the following pages you will see the data and map provided by the Chicago SunTimes. Next to it will be a map of the same area, created using a map showing the Tutor/Mentor Connection list of programs. The blue box on each map shows the number of high-poverty youth in the area.

  5. 5. The green icons on the map at the right are organizations in Chicago that provide some form of volunteer-based tutor and/or mentor services. Click on the icon to see name and website. Visit the site to see how they describe their services. There is no rating system that evaluates the quality of tutor/mentor programs. This graphic lists elements you might look for when you view a program's website. See it in PDF at - http://tinyurl.com/TMI-ShoppersGuide The T/MC survey launched in 1994 asked for a) type of program; and b) age group served. Thus, the search page built in 2004 (but no longer active) enabled people to fine tune their analysis, to determine the number of programs of each type, available to each age group. Using the two maps you can determine how many low income kids are in a community area and the number of organizations who offer tutor/mentor support. Looking at the program's website you can get a sense of how many kids they serve (but not from every website). Thus if there are three organizations serving 60 kids each, or 180 total, in an area with 4,178 kids, you can assume that more programs are needed. This is an imperfect system, but you can do much with it. This presentation is property of Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC - http://www.tutormentorexchange.net on Twitter @tutormentorteam Pg 5
  6. 6. Using the maps provided, a team of people can begin to determine what non-school programs are in a community area, how many kids they serve and what age group is reached. Using the information about the number of youth in the area and estimating how many kids are in each program, a “needs index” could be created to show how many more programs are needed, just to reach 25% of the kids in a community area. The planning team can then begin to develop actions that draw attention and operating resources, DIRECTLY, to each program within the community area while at the same time doing the research needed to start more programs where needed.

  7. 7. As you review youth programs ask, “What are you doing that helps kids through school and into future jobs and careers?” And, “What can you do to help them?” The Tutor/Mentor Connection/Institute, LLC survey only identifies non-school or school-based organizations that offer some form of volunteer-based tutoring and/or mentoring. It asked programs to show what age group they served; elementary school, middle school, or high school. Thus, there are other types of youth serving programs in Chicago that do not show on our maps.

  8. 8. No single platform exists with all the layers of information you need for your analysis. Learn to create maps from multiple platforms. This cMap shows some that you can use. http://tinyurl.com/TMI-MappingData View articles on the Tutor/Mentor blog to see ways to include maps from multiple platforms.

  31. 31. Population decline in Chicago since 1990s. When the T/MC began creating maps following negative news in the mid 1990s, the number of k-12 youth living in Englewood was almost double what it is now in 2021. However, the violence and the need to well-organized, mentor-rich non- school programs is the same now as it was then. However, there never has been a leadership team using T/MC maps and resources working to fill the entire community area with a wide range of youth serving programs. Will that still be the story in 2030 or 2040? This presentation is property of Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC - http://www.tutormentorexchange.net on Twitter @tutormentorteam Pg 31

The T/MI list shows no tutor and/or mentor programs in this area although there are a large number of youth who might benefit. Community leaders should look at websites of programs in other parts of Chicago and in other cities and build a list of features they would like to include in local programs. Then begin building a business/community partnership to make such programs available.

Use the T/MI presentation link from page 3 to find slides showing the number of youth in each Chicago Community Area. https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/breaking/ct-chicago-homicides-data-tracker-htmlstory.html Note: a map like this is needed for Chicago suburban areas, too.

  46. 46. Daniel F. Bassill Founder Thanks for reviewing this presentation. I've been creating graphics like this for more than 30 years. My aim is to communicate ideas that others use to help kids in high poverty areas. For long-term, mentor-rich programs to grow people from every industry, faith group, university, civic and social group need to be involved, all focused on helping programs grow in high poverty places that help kids move safely through school and into adult lives. As you read this information, share it with others. Encourage them to do the same. If you do that you'll be taking the role shown in this graphic. I'm on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram and look forward to connecting to you. If you need help understanding these ideas, let's set up a ZOOM call.
