From 1975 to 1992 I led a volunteer-based tutor/mentor program serving 2nd to 6th grade youth at the Montgomery Ward Corporate Headquarters in Chicago. I did this as a volunteer for the first 15 years. I then created and led another program serving inner-city teens, from 1993 till 2011. From these experiences I created the Tutor/Mentor Connection in 1993, to help similar programs grow in all high poverty neighborhoods of Chicago and other cities.
This presentation shares a "thank you" card given to me during the 1989-90 school year, signed by dozens of students and volunteers. Their messages are representative of many I've received over the many years of doing this work.
