Mentoring Works. Help me reach my goal so that many more underserved youth can be connected to caring mentors.
Dear Friends & Family:
I am sure many of you have heard me talk endlessly about Ashley, my incredible mentee, who is a junior at the Bronx Academy of Letters. Ashley and I were matched through an amazing organization called iMentor, where I volunteer as a mentor and sit on the Young Executive Board.
I know that many of you have had someone in your life you consider a role model, a mentor, or simply someone you can go to for advice and guidance. This is your opportunity to give today's youth those same benefits that you and I had.
iMentor connects New York City professionals with high school students from low-income communities, creating the foundation and support for high-impact mentoring relationships. The success of iMentor is demonstrated by the fact that 92% of eligible mentees graduated from high school after the 2009 program year (compared to New York City’s average graduation rate of 60.7%), and 82% enrolled in college. This year alone, iMentor will match 1,200 young people with 1,200 mentors in New York City; connecting professionals seeking a meaningful volunteer commitment with the young people who benefit so significantly from mentoring relationships. In order to do this we need your help. I know that times are tough, but if you are looking to donate to a worthy cause, this is it! Please consider making a donation to help me reach my goal.
To learn more about iMentor, visit their website at www.imentor.org.
P.S. I am competing against other mentors so check out the Leader Board (http://www.razoo.com/p/iMentor-Online-Donor-Drive) periodically to see if I make the cut. Also feel free to pass this message along to your friends. Every bit helps!
