Educate Donors, Leaders
Maps and other data can show what companies have business locations in different community areas and what philanthropic organizations provide funds to organizations focused on youth well-being. The can also show anchor institutions like hospitals, colleges, faith groups. And they can show political districts. The maps on the previous pages were created using the Chicago Tutor/Mentor Program Locator Interactive map., http://www.tutormentorprogramlocator.net These maps show the number of youth age 6 to 17 in each community area of Chicago who are below the poverty level. Thus, if there are 2,000 youth living below poverty, that means there would need to be 40 youth tutoring/mentoring programs each enrolling 50 youth to reach 100% of that number. The Tutor/Mentor Connection (Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC) has been collecting information showing non-school tutor/mentor programs in Chicago since 1993, breaking this down by age group served and type of program. The green stars on the following maps show locations of existing site based programs. Groups with community based mentoring could map addresses of clients to generate a similar analysis.

Educating Donors, Leaders, pg. 2
Use your web site as your grant proposal. If each organization offering tutoring/mentoring will show on its web site how many youth and volunteers are on its active roster, and what type of tutor/mentor service they offer, as well as what age group they serve, this information can be aggregated to show how many youth in a community area are being served. Thus, if you look at the map showing West Ridge, on the far North side of Chicago, you’d find one organization, yet but 3,191 youth between the age of 6 and 17 living below poverty level. Using the interactive tutor/mentor program locator you can add layers, showing poorly performing schools, and you can refine the list of programs to show specific age groups. This information shows a clear need for non-school youth supports, including volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs in the area, based on poverty levels. Donors should be willing to support the existing organizations and provide funds to help them constantly learn from others and improve what they do so each might be considered “best” in what it does to help youth and volunteers connect and stay connected. This information even shows more programs are needed, especially close to the two schools shown to be on the State of Illinois Poorly Performing list.

Educating Donors, Leaders, pg 3

Leaders, volunteers, youth and parents in the neighborhood can use this information and the Tutor/Mentor Connection schedule of events, to reach out to potential resource providers and leaders who have facilities in the community area to educate them a) why tutor/mentor programs are needed and, b) ways they can be consistently engaged in supporting the growth of mentor-rich programs in each community area. Connect city-wide and nation-wide. While such groups can meet at the neighborhood level and in on-line, they can also meet at events that connect stakeholders from different parts of the Chicago region, and with others from other cities, creating a greater public awareness that supports the on-going effort of each program in each neighborhood.
@ Copywrite Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC, 2013 Contact: tutormentor2@earthlink.net Pg. 24

Through this process we educate leaders who use their visibility to help increase the flow and distribution of resources needed for ALL tutor/mentor programs in a region to operate.

If leaders are seeking tutor/mentor programs based on where they are needed, based on number of youth living in poverty, the choices of who they support are limited by who operates a program serving youth in that neighborhood. Can we educate more donors to look at your web site, see where you are, who you serve, and what you do, then decide how much and in what ways they want to help you?
