  • 431 people are interested


iMentor is an education non-profit and youth mentoring program working to empower first-generation college students to graduate high school, succeed in college or other post-secondary pathways, and achieve their ambitions through one-on-one mentorships.

iMentor partners with high schools in historically underserved and marginalized communities. We match every student with a mentor and equip our mentors with the resources to support their mentees on the path to college graduation or other post-secondary pathways (gap year, certificate program, workforce, etc.)


Our mentors are often college-educated volunteers, who commit to working one-on-one with a student for a minimum of two years. It’s a hybrid program. Mentors write their mentee 1x per week (remote) and meet 1x per month at mentee’s school (in-person) during the school year


Your first step is to attend Mentor Orientation. At orientation you’ll learn more information about our program, our students and best practices, and what our mentors have found helpful along the way. . Click the link below to see upcoming date:

Mission Statement

iMentor builds mentoring relationships that empower first-generation students to graduate high school, succeed in college and career, and achieve their ambitions.


iMentor matches high school students (mentees) one-on-one with volunteer adult mentors based on shared career and personal interests. Matched in relationships ranging from a minimum of two years to a maximum of 4 years, mentor-mentee pairs cultivate their relationship employing a combination of weekly written messages and monthly in-person meetings.

iMentor is changing the face of youth mentoring. iMentor proves that (1) even the busiest, most successful New Yorkers have time to be quality mentors and that (2) formal mentoring increases the rate at which young people graduate from college, which benefits not only them as individuals, but society at large.

iMentor uses mentoring to bridge the divide between New York City’s diverse communities, creating unique and dynamic relationships that would not have been possible without the program. By exposing both mentors and mentees to new facets of their shared city, iMentor facilitates meaningful connections, empowering youth with the skills and resources critical for personal, academic, and career success.

Every student deserves a champion.
