Tutor/Mentor Connection and Lend-a-Hand Program

Since 1994 the Tutor/Mentor Connection and the Lend-a-Hand Program of the Chicago Bar Association/Foundation have been working together to raise visibility and dollars to fund volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs in Chicago.

More than $500,000 has been awarded in small grants and annual Demetrio Awards since 1995.  The first grants were awarded during a breakfast at the CBA headquarters.  Between 1996 and 2002 the grant presentations were a part of the Spring Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference.  Shown below are pictures from these events.
