Who keeps

memories alive after
media stop telling
the story?
The map stories on the following
pages were created between 1993
and 2000 to focus attention and
resources on places in Chicago
where bad news has happened and
to draw volunteers and donors to
volunteer based tutor/mentor
programs in those areas. Visit our
web sites, blogs and social media
pages to see maps made since
2008.

Since 1993 the Tutor/Mentor Connection
(T/MC) has been using maps to show where
volunteer based tutor/mentor programs are
located in Chicago, with additional
information showing where these programs
are most needed.
Map stories were created as part
of a strategy to build greater
public interest and involvement in
Programs located throughout the
Chicago region.
Tutor/Mentor Connection has been supported by Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC since 2011 See www.tutormentorexchange.net

While media
stories
occasionally use
maps, these are
not intended as
advertising, to
draw volunteers,
donors and
leaders to
support needed
youth
development,
mentoring and
jobs programs in
neighborhoods
of high poverty
The strategy launched by the T/MC in 1994
aims to follow negative news with map
stories that tell “The Rest of the Story”.
These aim to draw operating resources and
volunteers to youth tutor/mentor programs
growing in these areas.
These maps were created
in 1996, demonstrating a
long term commitment to
using maps to mobilize
resources for high poverty
areas of Chicago.

Example of Map Analysis to Determine Distribution of Corporate Philanthropy
After the ad ran in 1998 T/MC mapped locations of
agencies listed in the ad showing most located in
central part of Chicago. This was sent to CEO saying
“If I lived in a different area than where you fund
programs, I might want to choose another airline.”
Companies can use maps to align community
involvement with where they do business.

Volunteers, partners, investors needed to create and share new maps so we can teach more people to use
maps to draw attention and needed resources to all parts of the Chicago region where help is needed.

These stories
keep
repeating
If adults cannot keep our
attention focused on this
problem, there will never be
enough well-organized
programs operating in
neighborhoods where these
stories happen too
frequently.
Youth could learn to create
stories like this as part of
their own service and
learning. Try it.
