I have been very fortunate to work at iMentor this past year, especially for the students at the Academy for Software Engineering in NYC. At iMentor, our goal is to serve high school students on their journey to higher education through the power of mentoring. Many of our students will become first-generation college graduates in their families.
This month, we are laungching our iMentor Challenge. This is our community-driven crowdfunding campaign powered by the people who know iMentor best: our mentors. 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.
We’re going big this year and looking to raise $300,000 so we can bring mentors (could be you!) to a whole new school.
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
Thank you for your support!!
