THE STORY:

Sherman Reid wrote -

On your mark. Ready. Set. Let's GO!!

Just as a 26 mile marathon is strenuous, rewarding, and challenging, so is the bond between a mentor and a mentee.

I joined iMentor 4 years ago as my way of giving back to the very community I grew up in. Since then I had the opportunity to meet a chill freshman student, a young man named Jeffry. I didn't have a mentor to guide me through high school. If I were to travel back in time what would I say to my younger self? The reality is, we can't go backwards rather look toward the future. It was that thought which led me to commit and serve as a mentor. I can share the knowledge gained over the last 19 years with similar young individuals who deserve the chance to prosper. 

Any dollar amount goes a long way to help iMentor serve more schools and provide the necessary support for first-generation college-bound students here in NYC. Whether you give $10 or $1,000 — here's what your support can do for our mentees:
$25:    Can provide one mentee free access to iMentor events
$50:    Provides one mentee with an iMentor Interactive e-mail account to communicate with their mentor
$100:   Can supply one mentee with a year’s access to monthly career and college skills events
$500:   Can sponsor a new mentee for an entire year

Starting Line runs through to November 30, 2015. Thank you very much for your generosity and selflessness.
