Through the iMentor program I’ve been given the opportunity to help someone learn and grow during their most formative years. My mentee’s name is Alex. He is fourteen years old and currently lives in the Bronx. Like most kids his age he enjoys spending time with his friends, but what makes Alex special is that he’s incredibly quick on his feet. I’ve seen him race down a football field while dozen of kids trailed far behind. He has enough energy for two people and a draft horse. Despite his small size, he puts one foot before the other and without fail it leads him to his destination. I’ve had a great year working with Alex, and from the constant smile on his face I can tell he’s enjoying the journey every step of the way.
Please help me to reach my goal of raising $250 so Alex can continue to benefit from the iMentor program, providing him with a year of career and college preparation. Thank you for taking the time to read this. A modest donation is only a few clicks away.
