I watched the hangout in vialogues a few hours ago. Your poem captures all the key points.

This concept map is described in video at https://youtu.be/pRipJPgenFc?list=PLuMPcNCvy863xS79LZh8MdR5MEGbsnZIT The animation shown was done by interns in late 2000s. I invite others to create new versions and share with leaders in your own community.

Today the 20th Anniversary celebration of the 1997 President's Summit for America's Future was held in NYC. I watched via my computer at this link. http://www.recommit2kids.org/ I interacted on Twitter using #reconnect2kids

The event was hosted by the America's Promise organization and focuses on the needs of kids in every part of the country, which I feel is also the focus of the Connected Learning MOOC community. I encourage you to review the event archives and create future visualizations and conversations that connect your network with America's Promise and others working to help youth move through school and into adult lives.

I've used this blog since 2006 to show work that interns from South Korea, Hong Kong, India and the Chicago area have done to help me communicate ideas that I originated as blog article or visualizations. If you're an educator your students could be looking at these and then creating their own versions, with a focus on your community if you're not in the Chicago region.

Millions celebrating religious holiday this weekend. I hope some will read articles like this, showing roles faith communities can take to help youth in high poverty areas of Chicago and other cities. http://tutormentor.blogspot.com/2017/04/archdiocese-of-chicago-commits-to-war.html

I've been looking at web sites of non-school tutoring and mentoring programs in the Chicago area, which I host in my web library. I think I found one that had a page showing their "theory of change".

I created this presentations a few years ago to show my Theory of Change, or what I think needs to happen to make well-organized, long-term, non school tutoring, mentoring and learning programs available in all high poverty areas of big cities like Chicago. https://www.scribd.com/document/209996325/Helping-Youth-in-High-Poverty-Areas-Move-through-School-A-Theory-of-Change

I've been working on this for over 20 years, with inconsistent resources and little support from business, political, or philanthropic leaders. Thus, while I have a Theory of Change and a history, there's much that could be done over the next 20 years to have a much greater impact than I have had.

If many other leaders adopted this and other ideas I share, we might one day visit youth program web sites and see a comprehensive theory of change on each site.
