Mentoring offers Hope and Opportunity

This graphic is from this animation, which was created by Song Mi Lee during the six week internship she just completed with the Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC.

Our interns are part of a partnership with Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) in Chicago. Students come from Korea and China for a semester and spend the last six weeks in an internship with a local business or non profit. The video below is another project that Song Mi completed on her final day with us.

Another heart shape project is shown here. This was animated, but I can't find the video.

 The work space for these projects is in the Tutor/Mentor Connection forum. Visit and you can see work for the past few years.

This wiki page describes our goal of recruiting students from many high schools and colleges to do this work. This page shows how students doing this work can be acting as the research team for universities trying to build a better understanding of the Tutor/Mentor Connection and Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC.

Thank you to Song Mi and Sung Hee for their work this winter. If you'd like to become involved just join the Tutor/Mentor Connection forum and introduce yourself.
