Maps for the 34th state house district

From the Tutor Mentor Connection and Mapping for Justice.

These maps mainly look at mentoring/tutoring programs in relationship to failing schools, poverty, hospitals/clinics, college/universities, places of worship, banks, and pharmacies.

Using the data on these maps an elected official or a very concerned leader could determine what programs are needed where for the benefits of these failing schools. In addition to that these maps seek out where such programs can find sponsors especially from their neighborhood churches, banks, or pharmacies. Indeed even potential tutors or mentors for these students in struggling schools.

Are there any mentoring/tutoring programs that need attention in the 6th Ward? Leave a comment or send an e-mail if you know of any.

  1. Great post! I will be contacting both organizations with additional tutoring sites for TMC and to see how we can get a map from Mapping for Justice that we can use as a planning tool.

    Personally that's why I read this blog to discover things I might have missed in the day to day.
