THE STORY:

Now, more than ever, we need to show our students that there are countless people in NYC and around the country who care deeply about them, who stand with them and who will do whatever it takes to help them achieve their ambitions.

Almost 4 years ago I met Katherine through the iMentor program in NYC. She was in 9th grade and was just starting her high school experience. Through iMentor we worked on goals for high school, goals for college, and set Katherine up with all the necessary support to navigate through the college application experience.

Katherine and I were immediately a great pair and I am so lucky to have her as a Mentee. We support each other no matter what and it has been such a pleasure and honor to learn and grow with each other through Katherine's high school experience. It has also been a pleasure preparing for her college journey together. I know Katherine will amount to great things, as she is motivated, caring, loyal, and never runs away from a challenge!

Now that Katherine is coming to the end of her High School career our goal in this iMentor challenge is to raise $1,000 to financially support another pair for the next 4 years to come!

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

If you can give, it is greatly appreciated. If you are also interested in becoming a Mentor with the iMentor program please visit imentor.org. You won't be disappointed and can really make a difference in the futures of our beloved NYC youth.

Thank you for reading and please consider becoming a Mentor!
