See work done by past interns. Duplicate this in your school.

Since 2005 interns from a variety of colleges have spent time creating new interpretations of the ideas I've posted on various Tutor/Mentor Connection and Tutor/Mentor Institute web sites. Last year I asked interns from IIT to create some new presentations that gave attention to work done by others. In this visualization the intern used Prezi.

A second intern, Kyungryul Kim, developed a video, posted on YouTube, introducing the same interns, but using a different form of communications.

Since 2005 several dozen interns from colleges in the US, South Korea and China have spent time creating new interpretations of the strategies I've been creating for over 40 years. Hopefully some of these interns will continue to work with these strategies in future years, or some of the people looking at them will adopt them in their own efforts.

I support this work in a sub group at and I invite students from junior high, high school and colleges around the world to join the group and create your own interpretations of this information. This could also be project based learning for youth and volunteers in non school tutor/mentor programs.

I've posted work done by interns and fellow in these following locations:

Strategy presentation pages on Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC site. Be sure to view all three pages.

Videos by 2005-2012 interns are posted on Tutor/Mentor Conference site. On this page you can see 2013 projects.

Graphics by past interns, on Pinterest.

Find an tntroduction of of many of our past interns, on the Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC site This represents a vast library of work. I encourage you to browse through some of the projects and use your social media to encourage people to look at them. As long as there are youth living in high pockets of poverty with fewer opportunities for learning and career development in a city, there will be a need for leaders to build strategies that support the growth of a wide range of youth tutoring, mentoring and learning programs in these areas. Thus, these ideas are timeless. They need to be re-circulated in Chicago, and in other cities, so more people view them and consider which to adopt as part of their own leadership. There is work for many. Please get involved.
