I have been mentoring Alondra since she was a freshman and this June she will be graduating high school. I can't believe how far she has come and a lot of it is thanks to iMentor! When I first met Alondra, she could barely speak English, since she hadn't been in the US very long. We could barely have a conversation. I could tell she was motivated but just a little scared. Through iMentor's ciriculum and my encouragement, Alondra has made so much progress and will be ready for college next fall.
Help iMentor by supporting my page today. Every contribution will help support more mentor-mentee pairs like Alondra and me.
About iMentor’s Online Donor Drive
The iMentor Online Donor Drive team is a dedicated group of mentors and supporters who join forces to fundraise for iMentor. The proceeds of this annual campaign help fund thousands of mentoring relationships that are empowering students in low-income communities to graduate high school, succeed in college, and achieve their ambitions.
It costs $1,000 a year to support a pair and ensure they have access to quality programming and resources. So whether you contribute $10 or $1,000, your involvement makes you part of a network of individuals who are making a lasting investment in the life of a high school student.
iMentor builds mentoring relationships that empower students in low-income communities to graduate high school, succeed in college, and achieve their ambitions.
Students and mentors work one-on-one through iMentor’s online and in-person curriculum to navigate the college application process and build critical skills linked to college success. In New York City, iMentor partners with public schools to ensure every student in the school receives a mentor.
Since 1999, iMentor has connected 11,000 students in New York City with mentors, and will match more than 2,400 mentor-mentee pairs this year. iMentor also provides its curriculum, technology, and best practices to nonprofits nationwide to help them run effective mentoring programs in the iMentor model.
