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 youth in low-income communities with college-educated mentors who help students develop the leadership, academic, and social skills needed to succeed in high school and college. This year, 2,400 New York City high school students will work one-on-one with their mentors to build a bright future.

I’ve had the great opportunity to be matched with Roberto since September and will be developing our mentoring relationship over the next 4 years.   Roberto is a freshman in HS at Manhattan Bridges and loves his family, playing baseball and focusing on school. He can't wait for his mom to be able to move up from the Dominican Republic since he only sees her once a year. She finally got a meeting with the consulate so it looks like it might happen soon! Every week, Roberto and I exchange emails and we meet at least once a month in person. It’s has been amazing getting to know him and I am proud to have this opportunity to let you into my world as a mentor.

The Donor Drive is about Roberto, and the thousands of students like him who have the potential to do great things. For each mentor-mentee pair, it costs iMentor $1,000 to provide them with free access to technology tools, events, and staff support to help build strong mentoring relationships. Whether you help with $10 or $1,000, you can be part of a network of individuals making a lasting investment in the life of a high school student like Roberto. 

 

From iMentor:

Join iMentor’s Online Donor Drive
The iMentor Online Donor Drive team is a dedicated group of mentors and supporters who join forces to raise awareness and funds to further iMentor’s mission to help students in low-income communities succeed in high school and college. Every year, our team launches this “friendraising campaign” by making individual pages and asking friends, family, and coworkers to give to this cause that means so much to them.

You can join the team that is helping high school students in New York City build a bright future by making a page or donating to one today!

Donor Drive Makes a Difference
Funds raised will help iMentor match 2,400 students with mentors this year. It costs $1,000 for iMentor to provide each mentor-mentee pair with access to quality programming and resources. Every donation you give or raise—whether $10 or $1,000—will make you part of a team that is having a lasting impact on the life of a high school student.

 

Why We Do This
“[My mentor] helped me realize that if I want to succeed, I have to do better. She’s helped me learn the steps on how to become a better person and also a better student. I want to succeed.”–Emily, mentee

The donor drive is about Emily, and the thousands of students like her, who have the potential to do great things. Students in low-income communities need the support from mentors to graduate high school and succeed in college. In New York, only 37 percent of all students graduated high school college-ready in 2011. To build college-readiness for students in low-income communities, iMentor matches students with mentors who work with them one-on-one to help them graduate high school, navigate the college application process, and develop critical skills that lead to college success.

Spread the word and get everyone in your network involved in this year’s Online Donor Drive. It’s not every day that you can say you helped change a life, but today can be that day.
