Great work! I lead the Tutor/Mentor Connection, based in Chicago. I encourage you to look at the Program Locator at http://www.tutormentorexchange.net and see how we're using maps and a database to try to connect volunteers and donors with all of the volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs in the Chicago region.

With the maps we encourage donors to focus on all of the neighborhoods, and the many "invisible" small organizations that do good work in important places, but don't have the marketing or visibility to draw resources consistently to their own programs.

I share your belief that youth teams can take the lead in marketing this message to donors. In the Discussion Forum of http://www.tutormentorconnection.org I've proposed such ideas in a Service Learning and a Business School discussion thread. I hope you and your readers will take a look.

This is great work! Any similar programs in Minnesota - working for girls economic security and investing in their financial success- should please check out the funding opportunities offered by the Women's Foundation of Minnesota called GirlsBEST.
