Tutor / Mentor Connection “It Takes a Village To Raise a Child.” This Web site is linking ideas, programs and people to help build a village of comprehensive mentoring-to-career programs in every poverty neighborhood of any city. While many efforts are aimed at mobilizing mentors, the T/MC and this web site are aimed at building and sustaining a "village" of great tutor/mentor programs, making sure there are enough of these programs, and that they are where they are most needed...and that they have the RESOURCES each needs. As part of this strategy, the T/MC is working to create a flow of resources (volunteers, dollars, training, equipment, media attention) into every neighborhood, not just the most visible ones, so that ALL of these programs can be more successful for the many years it takes to build the village, and to raise the child.
