- Collect knowledge from key stakeholders about volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs: how programs succeed, where programs are located, and where more programs and resources are needed.
- Aggressively share this knowledge through marketing and public awareness campaigns, capitalizing on the Internet as a chief vehicle of communication.
- Strengthen involvement of community and industry leaders to increase essential resources to tutor/mentor programs.
- Facilitate understanding and collaboration among stakeholders to develop the long-term, integrated actions needed to help youths move from birth in poverty to a job or career by age 25.
We will do all of these things at next week's conference. You can view a concept map of this strategy here. For more details on the conference and to register, visit http://www.tutormentorconference.org/ or call 312-492-9614. Thank you.
