THE STORY:

Hey everyone, this is my 12th year with iMentor. This year, my mentee is Zhiqiang Ke. He's 19 years old, from the Fujian Province and has been in the US for only 3 years. He has aspirations to become an accountant and currently goes to Brooklyn International High School. Outside of school, he makes sushi at a food court in Fresh Meadows, Queens. How's that for drive?!

It would be great if you could donate $5, $10 or more so that iMentor can continue mentoring relationships like mine and Zhiqiang's.

 

Welcome to iMentor’s 2012 Online Donor Drive!

iMentor provides youth in underserved communities with college-educated mentors who help students develop the leadership, academic, and social skills needed to succeed in high school and college.  This year, 2,400 New York City high school students will work 1:1 with their mentors to build a bright future.

Online Donor Drive?
You ended up here because someone told you about the Online Donor Drive, and now you’re probably wondering what it’s all about? The Online Donor Drive (ODD) is our annual "friendraising" campaign aimed at bringing together mentors and their networks to raise awareness and funds to support iMentor's work (think bike-a-thon, with less “bike” and more “thon”).  iMentor’s true impact is best explained by the students we serve: 

“[My mentor] helped me realize that if I want to succeed, I have to do better. She’s helped me learn the steps on how to become a better person and also a better student. I want to succeed.”

-Emily, iMentor mentee

The drive is about Emily, and thousands of students like her, who have the potential to do great things.  Last year, ODD brought in over $86,000, the most ODD has ever raised!  This year we aim to shatter that record, and with your help, raise over $125,000. 

But why is Online Donor Drive important?
Word of mouth is a powerful thing.  The Online Donor Drive is made up of those who, week after week, dedicate their time, passion and support- mentors.  The campaign’s “drive” comes from each mentor lending their voice in support of iMentor and the impact the program has.  It costs $1,000 a year to support a pair and ensure they have access to quality programming and resources.  So, whether you help with $10 or $1,000, your involvement makes you part of a network of individuals making a lasting investment in the life of a high school student.

So spread the word and get everyone in your network involved in this year’s ODD. It’s not every day that you can say you helped change a life, but today can be that day.
