Enjoy your Holidays. Spread cheer to others.
As we head into the final two weeks of 2022 and celebrate the holidays I thank you all for reading and sharing this monthly newsletter and wish you all a safe, happy, Holiday.

The Holiday Season is a time of gift giving and celebration with friends and family. It's also a time of reflection as we look back on 2022 and forward into 2023.

Please use the resources I share to find and support youth tutor, mentor and learning programs so you give the gifts of HOPE and OPPORTUNITY to more kids throughout the US and the world.
Use this newsletter as a study guide.

The ideas and resources shared in this monthly newsletter point to a library of resources that can be used by anyone, in Chicago, or around the world, to help mentor-rich youth programs thrive in all of the neighborhoods where they are most needed.

If you are a consistent reader, consider a contribution to help fund the Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC
Seek out youth programs in high poverty areas.  Offer your help.
Look for Chicago area youth tutor mentor programs on any of the lists on the T/MI website . Pick one or more to support with time, talent and dollars. The lists that I host also include youth serving programs beyond Chicago, as well as programs focusing on arts, STEM and other issues.
Read about STEMM goals for 2050
On December 12th a White House Summit on STEMM Equity and Excellence was held. I watched the archived recording and then edited some of my concept maps to show how these could be used to support the STEMM 2050 goals.

Take a look at the video and my concept maps in this blog article.

Helping kids through school and into jobs and careers by age 25 requires the same actions and strategies and commitment of leaders from every sector as will helping more kids into STEMM careers by 2050. I invite communities to use my maps and library as a resource for their own planning and to create new versions that include my edits, and focus the maps on STEMM.
Below are resources to use to help youth in your community.

About this newsletter.

While I try to send this only once a month, I write blog articles weekly. Throughout the newsletter I post links to a few of the articles published in the past month or earlier. I encourage you to spend a little time each week reading these articles and following the links. Use the ideas and presentations in group discussions with other people who are concerned about the same issues.

I encourage you to connect with me, and each other, on one or more social media networks. This page has links to several, including my account on Mastodon. With Twitter's future in doubt it's important that we find other places to connect.

Encourage friends, family, co-workers to sign up to receive this newsletter. Click here.
(If you subscribe, don't forget to respond to the confirmation email).
Every year since 2011 I've offered two ways for people to support Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC with contributions. One is with a birthday gift.

I'll be 76 on December 19. You can help put candles on my cake with a $7.60 donation for a single candle or a $76 contribution for 10.

Thank you for reading.
Please help fund T/MI.
Since 2011 I've not operated as a non-profit, but as Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC. I'm doing the same work, just with a different tax structure (and same small budget!).
If you want to help fund T/MI with a year-end contribution, visit this page.

Thank you to everyone who has already sent December contributions!
