What is problem?
Problem - Solving
Helping inner-city kids move from first grade to job requires support system
Getting more people involved and keeping them involved for many years
For change to occur
All four parts of this strategy must happen concurrently and for many years
This information-based, networking strategy is a cycle that repeats for many years, and is available to anyone in the world with access to the Internet.
T/MC 4 part strategy can be found at -http://tinyurl.com/TMC-4-Part-Strategy
Step 1
Collect and organize “all that is known”
The T/MC library shares knowledge that can be used to expand the availability and enhance the effectiveness of these services to children throughout the Chicago region
Knowledge as Political Power
Mapping networks of information and people can reduce the feeling of complexity
The visualization of networks can be a way to make the world perceptible again and improve the comprehension of it

Must be sustained and grow over many years.
Many Owners Needed in Many Places
Events like Tutor/Mentor Conference help build public attention.
Engage many in communications and network-building
Media stories draw attention to need for tutor/mentor programs.
Step 3
Facilitate Understanding and collaboration
This is one of many slides created to help build understanding and support collective efforts.
Systems of support needed is an on-going effort to change how support is generated for tutor/mentor programs
Dramatically increase the number of people looking at the knowledge and ideas we collect and share on our web sites.
Step 4
Increase Resource for Tutor/Mentor Programs
Motivating pro-active actions of individuals is goal
As more people get take on roles
that encourage people they know and work with to become volunteers, donors, leaders will develop diverse support networks
Such programs will keep leaders in place longer,
building deeper organizational knowledge and stronger relationships with youth.
This is our network where we share these ideas.
if many people are sharing and applying these same ideas in their networks.
