This map shows the people I met and workshops I attended on June 18 when I attended the National Conference on Volunteering and Service in Chicago.

Through this newsletter and several web sites I share information that others can use to support the growth of volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs in their own communities. My purpose is also to encourage people who are leading or supporting programs in Chicago and other cities to connect with me and each other in events I organize, such as the May and November Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conferences. http://www.tutormentorconference.org
The goal is to stimulate on-going learning and actions that dramatically increase the flow of volunteers, dollars, ideas and other needed resources directly to all of the organizations in Chicago and other cities working to help youth move from birth to work and adult roles.

|New Visualizations Help Show Growth of Networks|
Since 2006 Interns from IIT and other Universities have worked with Tutor/Mentor Connection to build their own understanding of T/MC strategies and ideas and to create new visualizations that share these ideas. This work continued in May-June 2012 under the Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC umbrella.
During the May-June 2012 Internship one student created Social Network Analysis Maps showing the growth of the Tutor/Mentor Connection network on Ning.com from 3 people in 1997 to 417 people by May 2012. The graphics above are part of presentations you can view at http://tinyurl.com/TMI-SNA-2012-Mina and http://tinyurl.com/TMI-SNA-2012-Park
In addition, a second student created a series of five essays to introduce the Tutor/Mentor Connection and describe each step of the four-part strategy.

by Daniel F. Bassill
hope you'll take a look at the Social Network Analysis graphics that
our May-June 2012 interns created. These are intended to
show how the number of people working together to support a cause
grows because of the intentional efforts of many people.
As you do I also encourage you to form "learning circles" in schools, businesses, faith groups, etc. Read the articles in the Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC library and on our blogs. Follow the links to even more information and ideas that you can use to expand your own involvement in strategies that are needed in many places and for many years.
