iMentor is a volunteer program that pairs one high school student with an adult mentor in New York City. Over the course of their 4-year high school tenure, the student meets once monthly and emails once weekly with his/her mentor. I've been an iMentor for 3 years now, and the program has brought me a lot of perspective and a ton of fun. Helping a student navigate the pressure of high school performance, the challenges of job and college application, and the day-to-day of NYC life is really rewarding, and merits support and participation. Between volunteer screening, events, and keeping the lights on, the cost to iMentor remains about $1,000 per pair, which powers 120 staff members to support 3,500 students. They need support!
