programs are most needed throughout city.

This will help improve
distribution of K-12,
volunteer-based, non-school,
Tutor/Mentor Programs in
high poverty areas.

Educate donors, volunteers

actively looking for ways to
distribute needed resources
into the neighborhoods
where the numbers show
these programs are most
needed.

An organized, volunteer-based tutor
and/or mentor program is a place in a
neighborhood where kids and volunteers
from various backgounds and work
experience meet on a regular basis. In
some programs youth and volunteers
stay involved for many years.

This map shows locations of non-school
youth serving organizations in the
Chicago region who include volunteer
based tutoring and/or mentoring in some
way in their program design. They are all
different, so you need to view web sites
to shop and compare.

There are not enough programs to serve
the 200,000+ youth living in high poverty
areas of the Chicago region..

Groups need to be working in every high poverty community area to identify existing
programs, help new programs grow where more are needed, and provide on-going
resources to help each program become the best it can be.

Educate Donors, Leaders
Maps and other data can show where non-school tutor/mentor programs are
most needed and where existing programs operate. Maps can also 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. (go to next page)

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 only one tutor/mentor organization, yet in 2011 there were
3,191 youth between the age of 6 and 17 living below poverty level. That
number has increased to 4,218 in 2018!.
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.

*Note: Since 2013 the Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC has not had the resources to update
the Program Locator. Help is needed.

Educating Donors, Leaders, pg 3

Leaders, volunteers, youth and parents in the neighborhood can use this
information and quarterly events, such as those offered between 1994 and 2015, by the
Tutor/Mentor Connection, 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 this only engages a few people. Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC advocates for planning
groups, program leaders and volunteers connect with each other in on-line spaces, such
as social media. In doing so, they can also connect with other stakeholders from different
parts of the Chicago region, and with others from other cities throughout the country,
creating a greater level of idea-sharing and program support along with a greater public
awareness that supports the on-going effort of each program in every high poverty
neighborhood.
Pg. 26
@ Copywrite Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC, 2013 Contact: tutormentor2@earthlink.net
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?
