I'm raising money to support iMentor, one of the best programs to help high school students prepare for college.
I'm mentoring Nazerke, who is a junior in high school and she recently immigrated from Kazakhstan. Naze is one of those amazing students that when you meet her, you just know she's going to go far. We've been a pair since October and we'll be together through the iMentor program for 3 years.
The fundraiser is to support the whole non-profit. They are trying to expand their program to reach more students next year, and I really believe that this model can have a big impact on the lives of the students and the mentors!
I would definitely recommend becoming a mentor, too. The commitment is 1 email per week, and 1 event per month, and there's a lot of structure to help you get to know your mentee. If you can't donate, please consider joining the program!
