As many of you know, I am a mentor to a college student through iMentor. iMentor builds mentoring relationships that empower students in low-income communities to graduate high school, succeed in college, and achieve their ambitions.
I’ve had the great opportunity to be matched with Jasmine for over a year and through our time together, Jasmine successfully transitioned into LaGuardia Community College last Fall. She continues to write poetry, improv and maintains fantastic grades. It has been amazing to see her through this transition and I am proud to share my experience as a mentor through iMentor. This year Jasmine and I are focused on making sure she maintains high grades while actively involved in campus activities. As she develops her focus on coursework, we are making sure she stays balanced through her poetry and writing which serve as her creatuve outlet and inspiration.
Please sponsor my ongoing commitment to Jasmine by donating to my page today. It costs $1,000 per year to support each pair and ensure they have access to quality curriculum, programming, technology, and resources. Every contribution will help support more mentor-mentee pairs like ours.
iMentor builds mentoring relationships that empower students in low-income communities to graduate high school, succeed in college, and achieve their ambitions. Students and mentors work one-on-one through iMentor’s online and in-person curriculum to navigate the college application process and build critical skills linked to college success. In New York City, iMentor partners with public schools to ensure every student in the school receives a mentor.
Since 1999, iMentor has connected 11,000 students in New York City with mentors, and will match more than 2,400 mentor-mentee pairs this year. iMentor also provides its curriculum, technology, and best practices to nonprofits nationwide to help them run effective mentoring programs in the iMentor model.
