Build strategy that develops great programs in all highpoverty areas of the Chicago region, and other cities.
The green stars on this map areorganizations that offer various forms ofvolunteer-based tutoring and/ormentoring. They are poorly distributed,with less in the South part of the city andthe suburbs, than in the West and North(
Note: there are too few programs in the entire city, but these areas have even fewer.)
A marketing strategy should be created to help existing programs grow, while helping new programs form in areas where none now exist.
