As a proud public school kid, I want to help mentor and grow the next Given our current political climate, 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.
I participate in a amazing program called iMentor which pairs Mentors with under-represented high school students for 3-4 years. We meet weekly online and in person 1x a month and it is my role to be another positive force in my mentee's life. Also, my mentee is totally teaching me how to be cool - he was born in the 2000's!
We’re going big this year and 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:
- $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
It is an amazing program and I hope you will consider supporting it with your donations or even your time by joining as a mentor.
