Business recognizes girls as formidable new force

This week's article of Crain's Chicago Business features a story showing how girls are becoming high powered social activists.

I have written several articles in the past showing how young people can take on activist roles, motivating adults to do more than what they do now to help kids have safe places, good schools, and access to jobs and careers.

All of the graphics and videos shown on this blog, and this page, were done by college interns. However, these could have been done by middle school and high school students.

Let's recruit more young people to create and lead campaigns that make mentor rich youth programs available in all of the high poverty neighborhoods where the are needed.

New Video Shows Planning Strategy Needed in War on Poverty

Kyungryul Kim, an intern from South Korea, has created a new video to communicate the ideas in this PDF essay, which shows strategies needed to build and sustain a wide range of youth serving organizations reaching k-12 kids in high poverty areas of Chicago and other cities.

This are a few of many presentations created by interns since 2005. View more in this blog and on this page.

If we want to help kids through school...

This is a new presentation created by Byeonghui Kim, an intern from IIT who has been working with Tutor/Mentor Connection for the past two weeks. This communicates strategy that was first outlined in this PDF.

See the full presentation here.

By presenting this information in a new format we hope more people will look at it and adopt the strategy in their own efforts to help kids in high poverty neighborhoods have the adult support networks they need to move more successfully to jobs and careers. This type of work can be done by teens and college students, or business volunteers, anywhere in the world. The ideas can be applied to any city. Visit this group to join in this effort.

How YOU can make a difference! New Video by Intern

This is a new video for Tutor/Mentor Connection (T/MC), created by Kyungryul Kim from South Korea. He is in an internship with T/MC in Chicago. Kyngryul looked at a past presentation about Tutor/Mentor connection, and made this video to communicate the ideas in a new way.

As you browse through articles posted on this blog for the past several years you can see work done by many other interns. Or goal is that hundreds, or even thousands, of young people in cities across the world become involved in this project, using their own talents to share ideas and mobilize volunteers and donors to support youth-serving programs in places where they are most needed.

If you want to get involved subscribe to the Tutor/Mentor Connection forum and join this group.
