ABOUT US:

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

ABOUT YOU:

Our mentors are often college-educated volunteers (but it is not a requirement to have a college degree to be a mentor in our program) 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.

TO GET STARTED:

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.

Description

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.
