Mapping Strategies and Knowledge to Support Multi-stakeholder Involvement Youth Development Programs Located throughout Large Cities

Daniel F. Bassill, D.H.L., of Chicago, Il, USA has been using CmapTools and concept maps since 2006 to map strategies that leaders could follow to help youth born in high poverty areas move through school and into jobs and careers, and to map the information he has aggregated on Tutor/Mentor Connection and Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC web sites since 1998.
