A fantastic 90s throwback taught me that "You Get What You Give", and iMentor has allowed me to give so much more than I ever knew possible.
Since the start of the 2015 school year, I have had the priviledge of being paired with a mentee who enthusiastically looked to me for guidance and support to finish high school strong and begin her college process. While we needed to work on getting grades up, prepping for the SAT, consider majors and juggle life's many demands, my most challenging, and rewarding task has been to instill a sense of personal pride and aspiration in my mentee. I am thrilled to announce that she has been admitted to three amazing colleges, reaffirming her newfound feeling that she can do this, and she deserves this.
Now, more than ever, we need to show our students that there are countless people across the country who care deeply about them, who stand with them and who will do whatever it takes to help them achieve their ambitions. iMentor is looking to raise $300,000 so we can bring iMentor to a whole new school in New York City.
It costs iMentor $1,000 to provide one mentor-mentee pair with access to iMentor’s proven college success curriculum and resources. Here is what your support can do for New York City’s students:
- $25 allows a mentee to attend a year of iMentor events
- $100 supplies a mentee with a year's access to monthly career and college preparation events
- $500 provides a college application event for an entire Junior class
- $1,000 supports the mentorship of one student as they work one-on-one with their mentor toward academic and personal success
Help me to celebrate my mentee's amazing achievements, help iMentor to reach more students in New York City, and give more mentors the opportunity to use their time, talents, and experiences to see what it feels likes to help a student reach their potential. Trust me, it's a feeling that money can't buy.
