Total Quality Mentoring (TQM

)
How do you visualize the type of
tutor/mentor program needed to help
kids in high poverty neighborhoods
move through school and into jobs and
careers…with the help of volunteers
who come into their lives via organized
tutoring, mentoring and learning
programs?
What does Total Quality Mentoring
mean?

Total Quality Mentoring
In the 1990s we begin to use this
term to represent something more
than community based mentoring.

In a TQM Program…
Everyone is engaged in “learning” in order to
constantly improve the impact a program has on
its participants…youth, volunteers, staff,
community.

The TQM chart can be drawn in many ways. Using network analysis
programs ought to be able to show the diversity of volunteers, who come
from different industries, colleges, faith groups, etc.

Each spoke in the TQM chart represents a “service learning” loop

As volunteers connect
with youth in an
organized
tutor/mentor program,
they learn about
poverty, and the
needs of the
organization. They
take that knowledge
back to their
workplace, faith
group, family, etc. and
recruit others to help.
