Education Improvement and Social
Justice in your programs: The Why and How
How do we find resources to support constant improvement and operations of tutor/mentor programs and others serving youth and families? What are some ways you raised money to operate during the year; b) if you were attending the National Volunteerism Conference scheduled for the third week in June, what one or two things would you want to learn; c) how can we work together to increase the flow of needed resources to all of the programs working with kids
During the panels there will also be table-discussions hosted by conference participants who want to share information in small group discussions. There will also be a handout table for information to be shared
Each of the panels will be video-taped and posted to the video library at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GwAF_Qga-Y
The fee to attend will be $20. A continental breakfast will be served. No lunch. No fee for participants in panel discussions. Visit http://www.tutormentorconference.org for details.

leaders, volunteers and donors can use to build a collective
understanding of where and why tutor/mentor programs are needed, as well
