THE STORY:

Welcome to my 2013 Online Donor Drive page!

As some of you may already know, I am a mentor to a New York City high school student through iMentor. iMentor provides students in low-income communities with mentors who are dedicated to helping them succeed in college and beyond.

I’ve had the great opportunity to be matched with Jonathan for the past three months.   Jonathan is a Freshman at the Academy for Software Engineering, New York City’s first public high school that will actually teach high school kids to develop software while preparing them for entry into College.  Our match will last his entire High School career, and hopefully beyond.

Jonathan is a bright and energetic first-year high school student who is already learning amazing skills that will help him achieve his ultimate goal of becoming a software developer for either Youtube or Rockstar Games.   The path to success will not be easy, and I'm hoping I can help provide him with the necessary motivation to study hard and reach the stars.

Help iMentor by supporting my page today.  Every contribution will help support more mentor-mentee pairs like  Jonathan and me.  I'm amazed by the amount of support iMentor provides its Partner Schools, and am thankful for the opportunity to be part of their program.

About iMentor’s Online Donor Drive

The iMentor Online Donor Drive team is a dedicated group of mentors and supporters who join forces to fundraise for iMentor. The proceeds of this annual campaign help fund thousands of mentoring relationships that are empowering students in low-income communities to graduate high school, succeed in college, and achieve their ambitions.

It costs $1,000 a year to support a pair and ensure they have access to quality programming and resources. So whether you contribute $10 or $1,000, your involvement makes you part of a network of individuals who are making a lasting investment in the life of a high school student.

About iMentor

iMentor builds mentoring relationships that empower students in low-income communities to graduate high school, succeed in college, and achieve their ambitions.

Students and mentors work one-on-one through iMentor’s online and in-person curriculum to navigate the college application process and build critical skills linked to college success. In New York City, iMentor partners with public schools to ensure every student in the school receives a mentor.

Since 1999, iMentor has connected 11,000 students in New York City with mentors, and will match more than 2,400 mentor-mentee pairs this year. iMentor also provides its curriculum, technology, and best practices to nonprofits nationwide to help them run effective mentoring programs in the iMentor model.
