As some of you know, for the past six months I've been involved in iMentor, a program that works to get students ready for college, from application to acceptance. My mentee is Destaysia, an incredible senior at Union Square Academy for Health Sciences. She's already been accepted to a number of four-year colleges, meaning she will officially be the first member of her family to continue her education beyond high school.
The iMentor Challenge is a community-driven crowdfunding campaign powered by mentors and their friends, families and colleagues. It costs $1,000 to provide one mentor-mentee pair with access to iMentor’s proven college success curriculum and resources. Any and all help is hugely appreciated. 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
