At iMentor, we are powering college success with thousands of committed adults every year who help close the gap between a young person's potential and the chance to pursue his ambitions. In a world where talent is equally distributed, but opportunity is not, iMentor is fighting to rebalance the odds and give every young person a fair chance to realize their dreams.
I am a Program Manager at this awesome organization and work with 11th grade students at the International High School at Lafayette, a Brooklyn public high school dedicated to newly arrived immigrants from all over the world. The students strive to master English, adapt to families they haven't seen in years, confront the universal trials of adolescence, and search for a future they can claim as their own. Their journeys are difficult and there are struggles every step of the way since most of them are the first in their families to attend and graduate college. Having mentors who can help them navigate the college process can be tremendously beneficial for them. I need your support to make college a reality for my students.....for all students.
iMentor matches every student in our partner high schools with a college- educated mentor, then equips every mentor with the tools and support needed to effectively guide mentees toward college success. Donate to help iMentor continue to grow and reach more students!!
