iMentor is a great organization that helps high school kids from underprivileged families. ~70% are at or below the poverty line. The program dramatically improves the chances that students attend college and complete the entire program. Some rough stats: 75% of iMentor kids attend college and 83% persist through college versus U.S. nationwide averages of 50% and 66% respectively. The mentoring also helps foster growth in personal skills and attributes that set the stage for success in life.
