This document is a "strategic planning template" that any hospital could use as a starting point for adopting this strategy and becoming a real Tutor/Mentor Hospital Connection.
Author, Daniel F. Bassill, D.H.L., President & Founder, Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC, has been leading a volunteer-based tutor/mentor program in Chicago since 1974. Today's article focuses on the questions he has been asking in his own on-going efforts to help Chicago youth benefit from well-organized, long-term, tutoring/mentoring programs.

Over the past 20 year's I've often met with people who wanted to build programs to help youth in their neighborhoods. After guiding some through the many sections of the Tutor/Mentor Connection web sites, some would exclaim “That's exactly what I've been trying to say!” I then would say, “As you read some of my ideas, try crossing out my name, and put in your name. Cross out Chicago, and put in your neighborhood. See if it fits. If it does, use it. Don't try to reinvent the wheel.”
Thus, as I share this “strategy graphic” and other ideas I encourage you to voice the words; use the graphic in your own communication and leadership. See if it fits. As you do this, you'll begin to find ways to improve upon it, using the talents and resources available to you and your own network.
