iMentor Night at The Ainsworth is a chairty event to help raise money for iMentor NYC, a school-based mentoring program that empowers high school students in low-income communities to graduate high school, succeed in college, and achieve their ambitions.
iMentor partners with public schools to provide each of their students with a college-educated mentor for three to four years. Students work with their mentors one-on-one, in-person and online, to develop strong personal relationships, nurture a college aspiration, navigate the college application process, and build critical skills that lead to college success. Pairs meet once a month in-person at group events and email once a week on iMentor’s secure online platform. The program staff facilitates and monitors each mentor-mentee pair’s progress through the iMentor curriculum and provides coaching and resources along the way.
