iMentor believes that every student deserves a champion. By partnering with Bay Area public high schools in low-income communities and matching full grades of students with college-educated mentors, we support young people – most of whom are first in their family to go to college – through the college process.

Mentors commit to exchanging one online communication with their mentee each week and attending one group event each month. iMentor provides a proven curriculum and expert staff support to ensure pairs are successful.This short video is a great snapshot of the program. 

Ready to get started? Here are the next steps: 

We are actively recruiting mentors (especially male mentors) with a goal to hit 376 by the end of September. Help us reach our goal by referring friends, colleagues or family to us or by sharing this message in your networks or social media. 

If you have any questions, feel free to reach me via phone or email. Looking forward to welcoming you as a mentor.
