More about iMentor:
iMentor matches college-educated volunteers with high school students from low-income NYC public schools with the goal of providing support and resources to the student to help them get into college. The pair builds their relationship throughout high school (typically matched freshman year) through one-on-one meetings, in-person events and online communications. iMentor supports thousands of high school students in the NY area (and they are also expanding in Chicago and San Francisco) and has a proven track record of success:
- 75% of iMentor’s high school graduates enrolled in college, compared with only 50% of low-income students nationwide.
- 83% of iMentor students who entered college persisted into their second year, compared to the national average of 66% for first-generation college students.
