Looking for someone to love you for your mind?

During the 1990ís, tutoring and mentoring programs became recognized as an effective avenue for improving the lives of children and youth who live in poverty in our communities. The biggest obstacles to involving more children and caring adults in tutor/mentor programs are the need for more of the programs themselves and the need for operating resources to help existing programs continually improve the quality of the work they do. To address these needs, Cabrini Connections, a Chicago-area tutor/mentor program, launched the Tutor/Mentor Connection (T/MC) as part of its own on-going efforts to build a successful tutor/mentor program by learning from the best work being done anywhere in the country.

We invite members of the Midwest Facilitators Network to share ownership of this cause, and become facilitators of this question:

How do we find enough people, programs and dollars to reach all of the kids who need this help? Where to start?
