Now, more than ever, 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.
Being part of iMentor is such a positive experience. This is my second year with the program and I see first hand what an impact it has on the students. My mentee is such a bright, curious, fun, and ambitious young woman. From the first day I met her I've been amazed at the influence this program has had on her and the value she sees in the programming. Often remarking how she feels bad for her friends at other schools that don't have the opportunity to be part of a program like iMentor. It is a privilege for me to be someone she trusts and turns to for help and guidance. I wish every student could have an opportunity to be part of this incredible program.
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. iMentor has a goal this year to add 300 more students to the program. 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 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
Any amount of money you could donate to this cause is greatly appreciated. This is truly a donation that will make an immediate impact of the lives of these students. Thank you so very much for contributing!
