Hello Everyone – as most of you know, I serve as a mentor to a New York City high school student through iMentor. This is my fourth year mentoring and I have had the opportunity to work with four great high school students. I am currently matched with Michael McClean, a senior at KIPP NYC College Prep in Manhattan. We have been matched together since September 2012 and will remain matched through his freshman year of college.
There are more details on iMentor below, but most (if not all) of you have heard me speak about how great the program is. It costs about $1,000 a year to support a mentor-mentee pair and I am asking for your support as I participate in the iMentor 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. No amount is too small to support this worthy cause.
Thank you in advance for your support.
