Support the Tutor/Mentor Institute - 2020-21


Let's create a world where all kids have greater hope and opportunity.
Help more kids in high poverty areas connect in organized volunteer-based
tutor/mentor programs.

I started this work in 1993. Please contribute to help me continue.

We want these opportunities for our own kids and grandchildren. We all want same long-term result of 
kids moving safely through school and into adult lives and jobs. There are many youth serving 
programs. But they are not equally good, or available in many places. Using information I've 
been collecting I want to help everyone "do it better".

That's what I've been trying to do since I started leading a single tutor/mentor program in
1975, and the Tutor/Mentor Connection in 1993.

Here's an article where I used the graphic shown above. And where I used news clips 
that I've saved since late 1980s, showing where youth tutor/mentor programs are most
needed.  I use these to keep reminding people of the long-term work needed and
to challenge everyone to draw from information libraries like mine, to find ways
to constantly "do it better". 

Here's a blog article with a video interview I did in March 2020 showing how I use
visualizations to communicate ideas and strategies.

Rather than trying to be the single leader in a huge city, the T/MC and now T/MI, have sought to
provide an information platform that all leaders can use to LEARN, EDUCATE, and innovate
ways to support tutor/mentor program growth in more places and to solve other complex social,
political and environmental problems facing cities.

With your help I can continue.

If someone you know has become ill and needs money to pay bills, they set up a "Go Fund Me"
page and ask for contributions. They are not 501-c-3 non profits. They are people needing help.

The Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC is not operating as a non profit either. However, it's also not a
profit-making business. So, this is my "fund me" page. I (Daniel Bassill) have been
self-funding this work since 2011, supported by a small group of continuing donors.

Please send a contribution of $25, $100, $500 or more to help me continue in
2020 and beyond.

Use PayPal or Credit Card to send your contribution to support
Dan Bassill and his work.  Thank you for your help!
