On Saturday, November 22, 2014, my team and I will be participating in the iMentor Classic: 3v3 Basketball Tournament. We are playing to raise awareness and funds to support iMentor, a nonprofit organization that helps students from low-income communities succeed in college and achieve their ambitions by matching them with mentors.
I am a mentor for iMentor and have been a mentor to Jarline for the past 2 and a half years. Jarline recently started her freshman year at CUNY York in Queens. It has been an awesome experience seeing Jarline grow throughout our time together and I think it is great that we continue to keep in touch even as she has moved on to college.
I've seen what the iMentor program can do for NYC students first hand and I am very proud to be a mentor within this organization. All donations go to this awesome cause so please help iMentor by supporting my team today! Every contribution will help iMentor pair mentors with students in New York City and across the country.
