Many of you know that I have been volunteering with iMentor for the past five years and I was paired with my wonderful mentee Bukky in 2012. iMentor is the organization that brought us together and continuously supported our aspirations, helped us grow personally and professionally and offered incredible opportunities to discover who we were and what we wanted to dedicate our time to. This year is especially important for us as Bukky prepares to graduate from Binghamton University with a degree in Financial Mathematics, pursue her career goals and become a mentor herself.
We hope you can join us in celebrating iMentor and supporting its commitment to education. The iMentor Challenge is our chance to do just that. It's a community-driven crowdfunding campaign powered by our mentors and their friends, families and colleageues.
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
