Poverty Maps

Tutor/Mentor Connection maintains a database of more than 200 locations where various forms of volunteer-based tutoring and/or mentoring are offered during non-school hours. TMC creates Poverty Maps to show where tutor/mentor programs are needed and Asset Maps, to show locations of businesses, churches, hospitals, etc. in the same part of the city, who could be mobilizing volunteers and providing ideas, technology, dollars, and even jobs, to help kids succeed in school and move to careers.

Visit the Program Locator and Chicago Programs Links to learn about different tutoring and/or mentoring programs in separate zip codes of the Chicago region. View maps in the Mapping for Justice blog, the Tutor/Mentor blog and in the Tutor/Mentor Map Gallery.

Use this How-To guide to learn how to use the Program Locator and update information for  your Chicago area volunteer-based tutoring and/or mentoring program. Use this Guide to Make your own Maps.

Maps intended to help leaders mobilize support for tutor/mentor programs in specific locations. This is a  map of the Illinois 7th Congressional District. The area has large concentrations of poverty and many poorly performing schools.  It also has areas of affluence, and the 290 Expressway, leading from the Western suburbs top the downtown work area.

If leaders in business, politics, hospitals and churches use their leadership and communications on a consistent basis, they can connect volunteers and donors from the affluent parts of this district with tutor/mentor programs operating in many of the high poverty neighborhoods.

Maps like this can be seen in the http://mappingforjustice.blogspot.com articles, and in the Tutor/Mentor Map Gallery.
