It’s extremely important to surround yourself with ambitious people. Unfortunately, that much easier said than done. Where do you find people who can challenge you? Even if you go to a great college or have impressive parents, it can be hard to find the right kind of people to push you. It gets even harder if you come from a low-income community. That’s why iMentor “builds mentoring relationships that empower students in low-income communities to graduate high school, succeed in college, and achieve their ambitions.” They’re a New York, NY based non-profit that was founded in 1999 and has connected well over 10,000 students with mentors.
iMentor’s focus is mainly on creating college success. By pairing people who have been there with people who want to get there, they’ve able to have a really significant impact in the New York City area. The addition of iMentor Interactive has allowed the organization to expand their reach to any community that is connected to the Internet. Here’s an overview of the results that they’ve achieved over the years (the most notable to me is that 71% of mentees will be first-generation college students). If you’d like to continue the story of success at iMentor, take a look at their Jobs page. Right now they’re looking for a Program Coordinator, a Volunteer Screening Coordinator, and a Product Manager. It looks like a great organization to be a part of.
