As some of you may know, this my second year with iMentor. I am currently in the first year of a three year match with Dominique, who is a sophomore at the Urban Assembly School for Careers in Sports. He loves basketball (favorite player is LeBron James), rap (favorite rapper is Lil Wayne) and has a great sense of humor.
This year I have set a target fundraising goal of $6,000. Any amount donated is greatly appreciated. Just click the large orange button on the right. You can read more about iMentor and the Donor Drive below.

Thanks for stopping by iMentor’s Online Donor Drive!
The Online Donor Drive (ODD) is a "friendraising" campaign aimed at raising funds to support iMentor's vital work. The campaign asks iMentor’s 1800 mentors to create pages and invite their networks to support their passion for mentoring. ODD is an outlet for crowdsourcing, fundraising and social interaction that allows pagemakers to tap into their competitive sides for a good cause!
Every dollar makes a difference. A donation as small as $25 allows a mentee to attend a year of iMentor events. $100 supplies a mentee with a year's access to monthly career and college preparation events. $500 sponsors a mentee’s participation for an entire year.
We have all had someone in our lives that we consider a role model or a mentor. Don’t you think today’s youth deserve the same opportunity? iMentor makes this possible.

iMentor is the premiere mentoring program in NYC. This year alone, iMentor will match 1,800 professionals in one-on-one relationships with students from low income neighborhoods in NYC. In addition, iMentor will bring our innovative model to thousands of students nationwide through our national program, iMentor Interactive. Mentoring relationships are changing the trajectory of mentees’ lives by helping them graduate high school and enroll in college.
iMentor’s impact is best explained by the students we serve. Kandace, a mentee from the Bronx, says; “My mentor gives me support in school and lets me know I can succeed. With her support, nothing can get me down. She lifts me up when I’m down and keeps me motivated.”
