THE STORY:

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

 

As many of you know, for the last four years I have been a mentor to a New York City public high school student through iMentor.   Since 2012 I have been matched with a bright and energetic student named Jonathan, who is now a Senior at the Academy for Software Engineering, a Career and Technical Education (CTE) high school focused on Computer Science and Software Engineering.  In addition to providing a rigorous college-prep curriculum, its students are also taught the fundamentals of Computer Science via an interdisciplinary framework that includes courses on Project Management, Engineering Best Practices, and Algorithmic thinking. 

 

Via regular email communication and in-person meetings, I made a 4 year commitment to Jonathan to motivate, advise, and support him as he continued his High School education and ultimately prepared to apply to College.   We are both proud to announce that he was accepted into multiple colleges, and has selected to enroll in City Tech CUNY in the Fall.  Many of you receiving this email have technical backgrounds, so we can all appreciate the huge amount of hard work and motivation that was necessary to keep Jonathan engaged and motivated to succeed.

I’ve decided to participate in the iMentor 2016 Challenge, a campaign that helps iMentor raise crucial funds to continue their transformative work. I hope you will consider making a gift to support this important cause.   My fundraising goal is $1000, which is the amount needed to successfully fund a mentor/mentee pair for 1 calendar year.
