Tutor/mentor Learning Network

This "tutor/mentor learning network" links the knowledge and experience of people and organizations from around the world.

The Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC operates from at least seven web sites that we own, and hundreds of other sites owned by others. In the Tutor/Mentor Connection.org site we host more than 2,000 links, pointing to information created by others around the world.

Our goal is to help you learn to use that information to expand your understanding of where volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs are needed, the differences between different types of programs, and the actions people in business, philanthropy, government and other sectors can do to help world-class tutor/mentor programs operate in every high poverty neighborhood of Chicago or any other metropolitan area in the world.

The information hosted on this site, which we call Tutor/Mentor Institute, represents ideas that leaders of the Tutor/Mentor Connection have accumulated over the past 40 years, while also leading a site-based, non-school tutor/mentor program in Chicago from 1975 to 2011.


This web site is where we share our own ideas, as crazy as they might be, of what an ideal tutor/mentor program might look like, and what industry and philanthropy leaders, and individuals from all parts of the country, need to to to help such programs be in all places where they are needed. We call this the Tutor/Mentor Institute because we aim to constantly learn new ways to do this work, and we aim to teach others to adopt these ideas in their own leadership.

Each essay can be expanded into a training manual and a textbook, which we hope will be used to teach what we and others know--in an organized manner--so that an industry of tutor/mentor leaders grows and that leaders all over the world will be more effective at building and sustaining organizations that mentor youth through school and into jobs and careers.

You are free to borrow these ideas. Just give us credit if you use them. We also invite you to help us develop these ideas, present them with better clarity, and teach them with more impact, to more people, all over the world.

Thank you for visiting, please give us feedback to let us know how you have been using these ideas and ways we can improve.

A complete list of essays is shown in the LIBRARY of this web site.
