It’s not every day that you can say you helped change a life, but today can be that day.
Today you can help a young person live a life of possibilities
iMentor matched me with Lucy when she was a high school junior in the Bronx. Today she is a sophomore at Columbia double majoring in finance and psychology. I'm thankful I have had the opportunity to make an impact on the life of such a bright and talent young person.
In New York, only 37 % of all students graduated high school college-ready
iMentor's donor drive is about Lucy, and the thousands of students like her, who have the potential to do great things.
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.
Your Gift Makes a Difference
It costs $1,000 for iMentor to provide each mentor-mentee pair with access to quality programming and resources. Each donation—whether $10 or $1,000—will make you part of a team that is having a lasting impact on the life of a high school student.
