|Connect with tutor/mentor program leaders - November 19, 2012, Chicago|
Next conference November 19 at Metcalfe Federal Building in Chicago.
The Tutor/Mentor Connection has organized a networking conference every six months since May 1994. All speakers and workshop presenters have been volunteers which enables us to keep fees low. In the November conference we will have up to 20 workshops focusing on the business of sustaining volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs as well as activities that work in different programs.

|Prepare yourself to be tutor, mentor in coming school year|
The Tutor/Mentor Connection web site has aggregated a variety of links to sites volunteers, parents, teachers and students can use to support learning. There are also sites mentors and tutors can visit to learn ways to improve their own skills. While these are available to you throughout the year spending some time building your familiarity with the sites will help prepare you as a guide to the students you work with.

|Breaking down silos - Connecting networks|
of the Tutor/Mentor Connection and Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC is to
connect volunteers, leaders and donors from many different sectors and stimulate
learning and actions that dramatically increase the flow of
volunteers, dollars, ideas and other needed resources directly to all of the
youth serving organizations operating throughout the region. Using the
conferences, web library and social media we connect people and ideas
from around the world with organizations in the Chicago region.
