The summit is modeled after the very successful Tutor/Mentor conference sponsored by the Tutor/Mentor Connection that takes place in Chicago twice a year. The object of the summit is to strengthen and inform the Indianapolis community of the availability and quality of tutor/mentor programs in the area. We will be sharing concepts to enhance tutoring and mentoring programs by networking with all stakeholders. We have planned workshops, a lunch networking & presentation and the day will conclude with a panel discussion, "A COURAGEOUS CONVERSATION ABOUT EDUCATION".
Our target audience for attending the conference includes current tutor and mentor volunteers, youth serving program professional, potential donors, Corporate leaders, parents, educators, and community political and faith base leaders We expect to have over 200 people in attendance.
The tutor mentor summit is an annual Indianapolis summit that provides a venue for all area entities that support positive services to our youth, with a goal of making these entities stronger, known and familiar to the communities where they are located. The summit will allow the people in attendance to network, share, educate, encourage and empower each other and the community during and after the summit.
We are eager to build better public awareness of the need to promote volunteer based tutoring and mentoring programs in our communities. We are hopeful that the information that will be shared with and by parents, educators, legislators, business entities, students and anyone interested in helping youth will be so engaging that those in attendance will be ready, after being “Call to Act, Ready to Act”, by the end of the summit. We want to assemble a group of entities that leave the summit ready to take the steps necessary to make a bigger and better positive impact on the lives of the youth in Indianapolis.
Why are we doing this?
What can you do?
Our plan: “A Call to Action – A time to Act” is our theme for the summit. We need you to join us to connect, inform and begin to build resources and relationships where we are working together to help more youth and youth servicing agencies in our Indianapolis communities.
Many people like to talk but we are ready to take action – come and tell us what you know, what you do and what we can start to do together. The end of the summit will be a panel discussion with various people from our community. Don’t miss this opportunity.
With education, opportunity and persistence...anything is possible.
