iMentor builds mentoring relationships that empower students from low-income communities to graduate high school, succeed in college, and achieve their ambitions. Students work with their mentors one-on-one, in-person and online, to develop strong personal relationships, nurture a college aspiration, navigate the college application process, and build critical skills that lead to college success. In New York City, iMentor partners with public schools to ensure every student in the schools receives a mentor. iMentor also provides its curriculum, technology, and best practices to help nonprofits run effective programs in the iMentor model. Since 1999, iMentor has connected 13,000 students with mentors. This year, iMentor is serving 3,500 mentor-mentee pairs in New York City and 2,150 more nationwide.
I have a mentor-mentee relationship with a high school sophomore, Courtney. She is energetic, confident, and WAY excited at the thought of attending college. The both of us work now while she's in high school, to ensure she navigates through this critical time and achieves her goals.
Please support the program! Your generosity allows thousands of NYC high-school students to participate in the iMentor program and then go on to become college graduates. We appreciate every contribution!
