BENEFITING: iMentor

EVENT: iMentor Challenge 2016

Rema Davis

THE STORY:

Junior Year! 

Thank you to everyone that supported us so far!

First year, you donated $7,000 … with your help last year, we passed $12,000!! 

The goal this year is to beat that. Please continue to support my four year commitment to Sultana with a donation.

It costs $1,000 per year to support each pair and ensure they have access to quality curriculum, programming, technology, and resources. I know this is a very lofty goal every year!

If you can, please consider at least $100, but know that EVERY contribution, no matter the amount, will help support more mentor-mentee pairs like Sultana and me. :)

With your help 75% of iMentor students enroll in college and that's 50% higher than the national average!!

 

About Sultana

My mentee, Sultana, is a NYC high school junior at The Young Women's Leadership School. iMentor’s goal is to empower students in low-income communities to graduate high school, succeed in college, and achieve their ambitions.

Sultana continues to amaze me. Not only is she taking 3 AP classes, passing all her Regents Exams, beginning the SAT prep courses and has been on the Honor Roll for every semester so far, but she is constantly searching for more ways to learn, grow and stretch her mind. Some of our activities this year, above and beyond the monthly meeting and weekly email, included

College experiences: we met over her winter break at my office to discuss the details and differences in types and locations. She met some of my coworkers as well, hearing about their different college experiences and financial aid methods. Later in the semester, we are hoping to make a few campus visits.

ChickTech: after she spent a weekend immersed in learning different technology, I was invited for the final presentation, where she showed off her work with circuitry.

Movies: we invited 3 other mentor/mentee pairs for a Saturday afternoon movie (He named me Malala), followed by hot chocolate and a discussion on racism in high school vs. college campuses.

Improv Everywhere: this was our 2nd year participating in an MP3 experiment, where 4,000 people simultaneously listen to the same set of instructions on their headphones.

Central Park: before she and her family left for the summer, we met in central park, walked around the Bethesda Terrace and up to Strawberry fields.

iMentor Gala: we were one of 25 pairs invited to attend. We met notable iMentor supporters and she discussed college experiences with current college students and recent graduates.
