This is Amazing!! We made it!! We hit the goal!!
March 31, 2017
My name is Letizia. I've been a volunteer for iMentor for the past 6 months and I have seen first hand how great is the impact that this association has on young high school students. The students we are helping come from low-income families. Most of them will be the first members of their family to go to college. I was one of them. My mentee Ashley is one of them. She is on 11th grade and she will soon apply for college. I want her to have as the same opportunies as the other little girls of her age. Every kid should have equal opportunities. More money means more opportunities. We want Ashley and the other kids supported by iMentor to be able to succeed and achieve their dreams. That's why we need to stand up and try to change this system with small gestures every day. That's why we need to give those kids all the support and the strength we have insight. Education is the first step to be prepared to fight for what we want. That's why I decided not to look from far away anymore but to get in the ring. Now it's your chance to make the difference! The iMentor Challenge is a community-driven crowdfunding campaign powered by mentors and their friends, families and colleagues. iMentor is looking to raise $300,000 this year so we can impact the lives of 300 more students & bring iMentor to a 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. Everyone deserves a champion. Be that champion.
