In a world where talent is equally distributed, but opportunity is not, iMentor is fighting to rebalance the odds and give every young person a fair chance to realize their dreams. We need your support to make college a reality for all students. We match every student in our partner high schools with a college-educated mentor. We then equip every mentor with the tools and support they need to effectively guide their mentees toward college success. We have all had individuals who have made an impact in our lives and with your help we can help iMentor continue to grow and reach more NYC students. Every dollar makes a difference. It costs iMentor $1,000 to provide one mentor-mentee pair with access to iMentor’s proven college success curriculum and resources. Here is what your support can do for New York City’s students: $25 allows a mentee to attend a year of iMentor events $100 supplies a mentee with a year's access to monthly career and college preparation events $500 provides a college application event for an entire Junior class $1,000 supports the mentorship of one student as they work one-on-one with their mentor toward academic and personal success.
In the 2014-2015 school year, iMentor and our partners will match more than 5,000 students with college-educated mentors.
