1. The Rest of the Story: What You Donít Get from the News
The T/MC doesnít have advertising dollars to draw volunteers and donors to tutor/mentor programs in Chicago neighborhoods. Thus when the Chicago media use a front page, or half page to tell of violence, or poor schools, we create maps and stories that aim to motivate readers to help volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs operate in these neighborhoods. As you view each map, read the blog story that is attached.

2. Schools and Poverty
This section includes maps that show where poverty and low-performing schools are located in the Chicago region. Our aim is to help leaders build strategies that provide non-school tutoring and mentoring support to youth living in all of these areas. Read the blog articles that are attached to the maps, to build your own understanding of how to use this information.

Succeeding Schools
3. Existing Volunteer-Based Tutor/Mentor Programs In Northeast Illinois
