As some of you know, I've been working with an organization named iMentor. The program connects working professionals with high school students in low-income communities across NYC.
The iMentor Online Donor Drive is an initative to raise awareness and funds to further iMentor’s mission to help students in low-income communities succeed in high school and college. Every donation you give—whether $10 or $1,000—will have a lasting impact on the life of a high school student.
My mentee, Taisha, is a junior in high school and eager to graduate and go to college. We focus on building college-readiness, navigating the college application process, and of course graduationg high school. Growing up in a very privelaged area and with parents who were extrememly supportive these were things I took for granted.
Funds raised will help iMentor match 2,400 students with mentors this year. It costs $1,000 for iMentor to provide each mentor-mentee pair with access to quality programming and resources. Every dollar counts, please donate today!
PS - iMentor is growing so can always use great mentors. You can also find more info here: http://www.imentor.org/become-a-mentor
