Hello, and welcome to our Near North Side blog for LSP111. We are a group of students dedicated to providing those interested with information about Tutor/Mentor programs in the city of Chicago, specifically in the Near North Side. We will spend our time focusing on neighborhoods such as Oldtown, Uptown, Lincoln Park, and the South Loop. Funding, support systems, and the ultimate effect that these programs have on the children they support are only a few of the aspects that we will be researching throughout our journey. Our educational aspirations will allow us to investigate and research the Tutor/Mentor programs from different perspectives, bringing you the most complete and in-depth blog covering the Near North Side of Chicago.
