The Rest of the Story
While the Program Locator can be a great resource, we must find innovative ways to encourage people to find and use the site. One strategy is what we call THE REST OF THE STORY. When local news media feature negative news about violence, poor schools and/or street gangs, we will create maps like you see on t his page that look beyond the surface details provided by negative media stories. These maps show how poverty leads to poor schools and show the locations of existing non-school tutoring and/or mentoring programs in the area, if there are any. Our aim is that people reading the news who want to reduce the violence and improve the schools will use these maps to connect with tutor/mentor programs, as volunteers, leaders and donors. If there are not enough programs in the area, T/MC maps show businesses, faith groups, colleges and hospitals who can be partners in helping new programs grow.
