The Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC's vision:
We will help educationally disadvantaged children and youth reach jobs and careers by expanding the number of extra adults who become personally involved in their lives.
As a result of our actions, thousands of educationally disadvantaged children in major cities like Chicago will participate and benefit from comprehensive, mentor-rich programs that stimulate children's' desire to learn, increase their self-esteem, and reinforce classroom teaching through lessons and friendships with adult role models. Such program will mentor adults into greater involvement while mentoring youth, thus creating a mentoring-to-careers network of adults who will open doors to scholarships, jobs and careers as youth become young adults.
