In a December 2016 blogpost on the Tutor/Mentor.org website, Daniel Bassill, PhD, CEO of the Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC, wrote "I am one of those people who fear what will happen to our democracy and freedom, and the planet's health, over the next few years. In some of the posts I've read, writers say 'don't lose hope' and 'get involved locally with a cause you care about'".
Those kind of articles inspired Dan to build upon his work in connecting youth with tutoring, mentoring and careers to increase civic engagement around issues that present the greatest barriers to community improvement. In so doing, Dan has created maps and visualization tools to build youth service networks, as well as a planning tool to address issues such as community violence.
