THE STORY:

Most of you know that I work for iMentor, a New York City non-profit that provides students in low-income communities with mentors who are dedicated to helping them to succeed in college and beyond.

You may not know that I am a mentor myself, to an extraordinary young woman named Tracy. Tracy lives in Washington Heights, and is a senior at KIPP NYC College Prep High School. Like me, Tracy loves Disney movies, everything chocolate, and reality TV shows about weddings. Unlike me, however, no one in Tracy's family has attended college. Tracy is in the midst of the college decision process now (she's already been accepted to two SUNY schools!), but wherever she goes next year, she's going to advice, resources, encouragement, and lots of support. I know I had people who helped get me through college - parents, family members, friends, teachers - and I'm sure you did too. I'm proud to be that person in Tracy's life, working with her throughout her college career and helping her achieve her dream of becoming an FBI agent.

That's why iMentor is so important - it provides crucial guidance and support to young people to help get them to and through college. 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.

Please consider making a gift to support iMentor. Every contribution will help support mentor-mentee pairs like me and Tracy.

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.
