Volunteer Recruitment Video

Minsub Lee, a 2011 intern from IIT and Korea, created this video to support volunteer recruitment. The link on the video points to this page on the Tutor/Mentor Connection web site where people from Chicago and other cities can get ideas for mobilizing volunteers.

During the summer we invite teens and volunteers from other programs to submit videos that they create to promote volunteer and donor involvement in tutor/mentor programs. We'll share links to those that do the most to bring these resources to all programs in a geographic area, in addition to the host program.

What can sports stars do?

This graphic is from a new animated video was created by an intern from Korea working with the Tutor/Mentor Connection during May/June 2011. It was created from the ideas in this pdf and these blog articles. Play video.

Our goal is to teach athletes who already have set up foundations and support youth programs to go one step further and use their visibility to motivate fans to support tutor/mentor programs throughout the city where they play sports. If enough athletes do this, and if some use their web sites and blogs to create their own versions of these videos, we can fill the stands with many more volunteers, donors and fans helping tutor/mentor programs reach inner city kids.
