We are currently recruiting mentors to be matched in fall 2020. By completing the application and orientation process now, you'll have a head start and be on the priority list for matching in October. If you have a male friend who would like to mentor with you, let them know about this great opportunity to buddy with you as a mentor and be matched at the same school.
One email a week, one event a month, one more student excited about college.
The guidance of a mentor can empower a young person to graduate high school, succeed in college, and achieve their ambitions. iMentor is seeking college-educated volunteers to mentor students from our partner CPS high schools.
Using iMentor’s dedicated curriculum and staff support, mentors and students work together, in-person and online, to develop strong personal relationships, nurture a college aspiration, navigate the college application process, and build critical skills that lead to college success.
Mentors communicate weekly with their student using our online platform and attend one in-person group event each month. Through these activities, mentors will develop a supportive mentoring relationship that will last for 3 years and guide a mentee through iMentor’s college-readiness curriculum and the college application process.
Eligible candidates must be at least 21 years old and be a college graduate (2 or 4 year degrees accepted).
Since our partner schools are all within Chicago, all volunteers must live or work within the Chicagoland area.
Mentor relationships last 3 years; mentors should be reasonably certain of their ability to commit to remaining in the Chicago area during that period.
