iMentor leverages the power of mentoring to help youth in low-income communities gradaute high school college-ready and succeed in college. Matched in relationships ranging from one to four years in length, mentor-mentee pairs cultivate their relationship using a potent combination of weekly email correspondence and regular in-person meetings.
The iMentor program 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 programs can flourish in NYC's most isolated, low-income, and underserved communities. iMentor uses mentoring to bridge the divide between New York Ciy's eclectic 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 makes and facilitates meaningful connections, empowering youth with the skills and resources critical for personal, academic and career success.
