We Are the Legacy

September 28, 2010

Welcome back readers.  We are here to continue the legacy of last year’s bloggers about the far south side.  This year, we will be covering the neighborhoods of Morgan Park, Washington Park, and Greater Grand Crossing. 

We are taking a class that is about all the different tutor/mentor programs in the chicagoland area.  This class helps us get familar with neighborhoods and people that are less fortunate.  We are going to take a deeper look into the areas of the far south side and what programs they offer to help these children succeed.  So far in this class, we have visited Cabrini Connections and the Elliot Donnelley Youth Center.  Even though we have only visted two different sites, we really got the feel of the different neighborhoods and how these programs differ.  With different neighborhoods, comes different needs for different children. 

The far south side is a very interesting place to study.  There is a wide range of social classes that rank from lower to upper class.  Even in the middle class neighborhoods, like Washington Park, there are very minimal resources to help these kids succeed.  What we are going to look at are the different programs the far south side offers and what statistics of children take advantage of these organizations that are offered to them.




  1. The graphic is terrific!!! What a way to catch your audience’s attention!

  2. I agree. The graphic really helps draw attention to your story. I used this in an article on the Tutor/Mentor Connection site to draw readers to your blogs. http://www.tutormentorconnection.org/tabid/645/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/499/Default.aspx
