THE STORY:

As you may know, I am a mentor to a New York City high school student through iMentor. iMentor builds mentoring relationships that empower students in low-income communities to graduate high school, succeed in college, and achieve their ambitions.

I’ve had the amazing opportunity to be matched with Yosely, and this is our fourth year together. She’s now a senior at Manhattan Bridges High School and looking forward to attending college. We meet once a month and email weekly on topics such as setting SMART goals and understanding the college landscape. Getting to know her and guiding her through the ups and downs of high school life has been an incredibly rewarding experience.

It costs $1,000 per year to support each mentee/mentor pair and ensure they have access 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

ABOUT IMENTOR: iMentor builds mentoring relationships that empower students in low-income communities to graduate high school, succeed in college, and achieve their ambitions. Students and mentors work one-on-one through iMentor’s online and in-person curriculum to navigate the college application process and build critical skills linked to college success. In New York City, iMentor partners with public schools to ensure every student in the school receives a mentor.

Since 1999, iMentor has connected over 11,000 students in New York City with mentors, and will match more than 4,000 mentor-mentee pairs this year. iMentor also provides its curriculum, technology, and best practices to nonprofits nationwide to help them run effective mentoring programs in the iMentor model.
