In a different presentation titled "Rest of the Story" a vision has been outlined, showing youth roles in building attention and drawing resources to issues and areas where poverty reduces opportunities.

Role Youth Can Take to Draw Attention to Issues

  1. 1. Chicago Tribune 3-12-17 Devoted 2.5 full pages to story. Where's call to action? Tutor/Mentor Connection, Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC www.tutormentorexchange.net
  2. 2. The Rest of the Story On March 12, 2017 the Chicago Tribune devoted a large part of the front page and two full inside pages to the tragic story of a young man and his family living in one of Chicago's most impoverished and neglected neighborhoods – North Lawndale. With the story was a set of statistics showing the level of poverty, along with a map showing where the North Lawndale district was located. Other than a couple of paragraphs where it was mentioned that the youth participated in one afterschool program, there was no analysis of the level of non-school tutoring, mentoring, learning and/or jobs programs there were in the neighborhood, nor any talk about how leaders could be building a long-term strategy to support youth in the neighborhood, from when they are born till when they are adults, and in jobs. Since 1993 the Tutor/Mentor Connection (T/MC) (and since 2011 the Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC) have been using maps as a tool that leaders in any neighborhood could use to bring people together and support the growth of constantly improving non-school programs that provide safe places and extra adult support that helps kids build aspirations to lives beyond poverty, and helps them turn those aspirations into reality as a result of on-going, long-term support. The maps on the following pages could be used by leaders in this area and are an example of tools that could be used by leaders in other parts of Chicago with the same problems.

  3. 3. Here's a sequence of what should take place When you see feature story in paper about poverty, violence. Get address. Plot on map. Ask, “What neighborhood?.” Look for indicators of poverty, health disparities, other incidents of violence, etc. Use Tutor/Mentor Program Locator, or other indicators web sites that allow you to zoom into an area as small as a zip code or Chicago Community Area Determine if there are any non-school tutor, mentor or learning programs in the area. Plot them on your map (if someone hasn't already created a program locator directory that does this for you). Determine number of kids, age 6-17, who are low income in the map area. For Chicago this info is available at http://tinyurl.com/TMI-communityareamaps Do an analysis. Are their programs in every part of the area, for every age group, close enough for kids to walk to; safe enough to attract volunteers from outside of the neighborhood? What assets are available who could help programs grow? Look at web sites of existing orgs in the map area, as well as similar organizations in other parts of Chicago and other cities (Use Tutor/Mentor links library as resource). Compare what programs in target area do to what others do. If you see practices that you'd like to duplicate, build a team, find the resources and bring that practice to programs in your area.

  13. 13. YOU This is an on-going process of network-building. It's a form of evangelism and advertising. If YOUR communications are consistent, creative and reach the right people the number of people who respond and get involved will grow. If you repeat this for 10 to 20 years the result should be more young people coming through school safely who have a network of people helping them to opportunities as adults. If YOU don't take this role, who will? Property of Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC, www.tutormentorexchange.net tutormentor2@earthlink.net @tutormentorteam
