Since 1995 the Tutor/Mentor Connection (and Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC since 2011) has organized an annual volunteer recruitment campaign in Chicago to help all tutor/mentor programs attract volunteers. From 1995 to 2002 recruitment fairs were organized in different parts of the city and suburbs on one weekend in early September. Since then, the campaign has pointed potential volunteers, and donors, to a list of youth serving organization web sites, organized by sections of the city.

As you become involved with any of these programs expand your knowledge and impact by using the ideas and resources shared on the Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC web sites. Our aim is to help constantly improving k-12 tutor/mentor programs reach more youth, and help more move through school and into jobs and careers.


Volunteer to Help Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC
Since 2011 the Tutor/Mentor Connection has been operating under the umbrella of the Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC and has had limited resources to continue its calendar of events and maintain it's on-line support system. T/MI is looking for volunteers (and financial supporters)  to help collect and maintain the technology and program information in the Program Locator Directory of Chicago tutoring/mentoring programs, and to help build and maintain web platforms that others can use to find different places throughout the Chicago region where they can help.  Help is also needed to re-start and organize quarterly events, such as the November and May Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conferences to build public awareness and draw volunteers and donors to different programs in high poverty areas of the Chicago region.  Visit the Groups section of the Tutor/Mentor Forum and join a group that interests you.

On this web site and others, the Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC shares many ideas that can be used by business, political, faith and philanthropic leaders on this web site, not just ideas that leaders and volunteers in tutor/mentor programs can use. We seek volunteers and partners to help communicate these ideas to larger numbers of people and to act as facilitators and consultants to help thousands of groups use this information to help high quality tutor/mentor programs grow in more places where they are needed.

If you're not in Chicago, you can build a parallel T/MC-like strategy in your own community by helping re-build and update the T/MC strategy in Chicago.
