|Mission - Mentoring As Part of Larger Strategy|
After 35 years of leading a volunteer-based tutor/mentor program I realize that mentoring must be part of a larger strategy that engages adults from many sectors of the regional community in efforts that provide the supports kids need to overcome the challenges of segregation, racism and generational poverty.-- Dan Bassill, Founder Tutor/Mentor Connection, Tutor/Mentor Institute.
The mission of the Tutor/Mentor Institute (T/MI) is to gather and organize all that is known about successful non-school tutoring/mentoring programs and apply that knowledge to expand the availability and enhance the effectiveness of these services to children throughout the Chicago region.
THIS IS A MARKETING PLAN INTENDED TO MAKE HIGH QUALITY, CONSTANTLY IMPROVING NON-SCHOOL TUTOR/MENTOR PROGRAMS AVAILABLE TO THOUSANDS OF YOUTH LIVING IN HIGH POVERTY NEIGHBORHOODS OF THE US AND THE WORLD
