THE STORY:

Marlette is a freshman at the Bronx School of Law and Community Service. She is a beautiful girl with big hopes and dreams for her future! This is both Marlette and my first year with iMentor; we were paired this fall and will work together through her senior year in school. I look forward to working with Marlette at such a critical time. In the next four years, huge decisions will be made around class schedules, jobs, driver's license and college applications just to name a few. I'm proud to be part of a program that will allow me to be a guide and mentor to Marlette as she is navigating this phase of life. We appreciate your support to keep the iMentor program running strong! About iMentor 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 12,000 students in New York City with mentors, and will match more than 3,500 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. To learn more about iMentor, visit www.imentor.org or check out what it takes to become a mentor. It costs $1,000 per year to support each pair and ensure they have access to quality curriculum, programming, technology, and resources. I know this is a very lofty goal every year! We appreciate any support you can provide. EVERY contribution, no matter the amount, will help support more mentor-mentee pairs. With your help 75% of iMentor students enroll in college and that's 50% higher than the national average!!
