Tutor Mentor Connections said...

EPIC hosted a workshop at the November 2010 Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference. We're planning the next conference for May 19 and 20 at Victory Apostolic Church in Matteson. I hope you'll send a team to do a workshop showing how your program benefited from working with EPIC and how other mentoring programs might duplicate this. See for details.
