Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference
Join the Networking!
Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conferences have been held in Chicago every six months since May 1994. The goal is to bring people together to network and share ideas, while increasing visibility and the flow of needed operating resources to all of the tutor/mentor programs in Chicago. The graphic at the right can be seen in this animation. It illustrates the many different talents required to support involvement of youth and volunteers.
The next conference will be Friday, May 8, 2015 at the Metcalfe Federal Building, 77 W. Jackson, Chicago. Ill. Workshop presentations are now being accepted.
Essays in this section are roles leaders in business, religion, health care, universities and politics might take to support the growth of volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs in all high poverty areas.
