Support the Tutor/Mentor Institute - 2021-22

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 kids to move safely through school and into adult lives, with jobs
that enable them to support their families. Kids in high poverty areas need
extra support on a continuous basis for many years. These kids live in many
parts of big urban areas like Chicago.

While schools need resources to improve, influencing what happens in non-school
hours can do much to help kids come to school better prepared to learn, and
leave school with a broader network helping them find jobs and advance in their
careers.  Unless we change how programs are financed  there will always be too
few, in not enough places.

That's what I've been trying influence since I started leading a single
tutor/mentor program in 1975, and the Tutor/Mentor Connection in 1993
and the Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC in 2011.

Here's an article where I used the graphic shown above.
It's one of many visualizations
that I've used in my websites, social media, newsletters and blog articles to visualize
idea that might take thousands of words to communicate. 

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, $50, $100, $500 or more to help me continue in
2021 and beyond.

Thank you for your help!
