  1. I created the Tutor/Mentor Connection in Chicago in 1993 to help volunteer-based tutor and/or mentor programs grow in all high poverty areas of the city and since then, have been building a library of resources that programs and resource providers can draw from . I found Alberta Mentoring Partnership a few years ago and point to it from my web library and follow on social media. I think your resources are great and congratulate you on putting together all of this.

    The steps to create a quality mentoring program are pretty closely aligned with a presentation I put on my site more than a decade ago, under “Steps to Start and Grow a Tutor/Mentor Program”. You can find this along with a planning calendar pdf and some operating principles that I learned during my 35 years of leading a single program in Chicago.

    I hope this enhances what you are already sharing. In hope more people will find our sites and learn from both of us.
