Tutoring & Mentoring in Diverse Settings Addressed at Conference

FOR A.M. RELEASE: Monday, March 27, 2000

HARTFORD, March 27 - Helping tutors and mentors do their jobs in a variety of settings is the focus of the 4th annual conference to be conducted by the Connecticut Commission on National and Community Service on Thursday, March 30 at the Marriott Hotel in Rocky Hill.

More than 200 professionals and practitioners are expected to attend the day-long conference which starts at 9:00 a.m. with a series of workshops on helping persons of all ages, mentoring women toward leadership positions, and tutoring techniques in literacy. Featured presenters include representatives from schools, businesses, and community-based organizations who serve in a wide range of mentoring and tutoring programs in Connecticut.

After lunch, State Representative William R. Dyson (D-94), chair of the Connecticut Commission on National and Community Service, will recognize John J. Armstrong, Commissioner of Corrections, for his leadership in promoting the Governor’s State Employee Mentoring Program. The program is administered by Big Brothers Big Sisters and the Connecticut Commission on National and Community Service.

In a statement to be read at the conference, Governor John G. Rowland commends Commissioner Armstrong for his "outstanding job of promoting the State Employee Mentoring campaign. Mentoring programs enrich the participants and make a tremendous difference in the lives of young people. Fourteen Department of Corrections employees already have been matched with 14 at-risk children. The Department’s work to help the program grow stands as an example to our other agencies."
