Support the Tutor/Mentor Institute - 2024

Youth tutor, mentor and learning programs need support throughout
the year and for many years.

I led such programs from 1975-2011 and share my history to help others
build and sustain similar programs in more places.

My archives are resources anyone can use to build comprehensive, on-going
strategies that help more kids in high poverty areas connect in organized
volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs.

I started the Tutor/Mentor Connection in 1993 and the Tutor/Mentor
Institute, LLC in 2011.   Please contribute to help me continue.

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 to make happen 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.

For most of the past 50 years I've tried to motivate others to help me.

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

Here's a
video interview from 2022 where I describe the Tutor/Mentor Connection and
Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC to a follower from Nigeria, who I've mentored since we
first connected in 2008.

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.

View this article to see how I'm creating archives to share my letters and strategies.
This includes a link to a collection of news stories generated since 1993 by the T/MC and the Cabrini
Connections Tutor/Mentor program I led until 2011.

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, $250, $500 or more to help me continue in
2024 and beyond.

Thank you for your help!
