I am involved with this great program called iMentor. This program matches college educated working professionals with students who really need guidance and focus.
iMentor is a great program with lots of volunteers and staff who really care about these kids’s future. The program is expanding to more schools and thus needs more funds to hire staff and to hold events for mentee-mentor pairs.
Please either donate to my fundraising drive or consider becoming a mentor yourself! You really have a chance to make a positive impact on someone’s life.
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.
