Welcome to my 2017 iMentor fundraising page!
iMentor matches students from low-income communities with mentors to help them navigate the challenges of high school and pursue their goals in college and beyond. In most cases, students in the iMentor program are the first in their family to attend college. The iMentor program is unique in that students enroll directly in classes taught by iMentor program managers with curriculum that supplements the mentor-mentee partnership. I joined the iMentor organization in 2016 and mentor Wolf, a high school senior at the High School for Innovation in Advertising and Media in Brooklyn. Every donation will go towards supporting mentor-mentee pairs like me and Wolf.
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.
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.
Crowdrise makes it easy, fun and effective for mentors to share their story and raise crucial dollars to connect even more students with mentors. Three hundred more students to be exact. 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
