The America Learns presentation is scheduled for Thursday, May 25, 2006 at 9:15 a.m. Central Time. Mr. Kosman will present specific solutions nonprofits can immediately use to effectively monitor, evaluate and support their volunteers with limited management. Attendees of the America Learns presentation will also receive a special sneak preview of the Fall 2006 version of the America Learns Network – the only Web based network that simultaneously reduces evaluation and reporting workloads while providing personalized support to tutors and mentors every week.
"The Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference represents a wonderful opportunity for tutoring and mentoring programs to evaluate and strengthen their own volunteer tracking, training and support efforts,” said Mr. Kosman. “I’m looking forward to spending the Conference sharing America Learns' innovative work in this field while learning from others about other new and proven practices in the field.”
