THE STORY:

Welcome to my 2013 Online Donor Drive page!

As many of you 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 Kaseem for the past 7 months.   Kaseem is a Junior at KIPP who loves cooking and basketball (they really know how to match mentors and mentees well don't they?).  It has been amazing getting to know him and I am proud to have this opportunity to let you into my world as a mentor. This year, Kaseem and I have been working on his plan for after high school and how he can juggle all the different things he has going on in his life.

Kaseem wants to be a chef one day and it's been great connecting with him about how he can reach that goal.  This is an organization that is worth supporting.  So please chip in to help us reach our goal.  I'm trying to raise $500 by Sunday...come on, you know you want to help!  

Help iMentor by supporting my page today.  Every contribution will help support more mentor-mentee pairs like Kaseem and me.

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.
