As some of you may know, I volunteer as a mentor to a wonderful high school student named Nia. This is our second year matched, as Nia's sophomore year is more than halfway over. While my initial reason to get involved with iMentor was the hope to give back, I've found the last year to be equally rewarding for me. I truly value my relationship with my mentee and am grateful for the opportunities and resources that iMentor provides us with to be able to make a difference in Nia's life (and my own). This year, iMentor is supporting 3,500 mentor/mentee pairs in NYC. The cost for one student's participation each year is approximately $1000. Late last year, I was able to contribute to iMentor in a big way thanks to the help and support surrounding my (first annual) iMentor chili cookoff event. Please help me continue to give back and keep this amazing program going strong. Thank you!
