Invest in the leaders of tomorrow
In a world where talent is equally distributed, but opportunity is not, iMentor is fighting to rebalance the odds and give every young person a fair chance to realize their dreams. As an organization we are focused on creating educational equity for NYC students that are battling two pandemics – the recent COVID-19 outbreak and the systemic oppression that has plagued our country for hundreds of years.
It is these times that our students need our mentors and the iMentor community the most. We can’t stop our programming – we need to ramp it up, and that’s exactly what we did. This is where iMentor is essential – providing a dedicated Program Manager and a mentor who are both checking in on our students, ensuring they have the technology and tools they need, and that they know they have someone they can count on for anything.
