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
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.
