Description & History

iMentor builds mentoring relationships that empower students from low-income communities to graduate high school, succeed in college, and achieve their ambitions. At the heart of our work is the belief that education is the pathway to success.


iMentor was created in 1999 with just 49 students in a single school in the South Bronx. Today, iMentor serves more than 6,000 students through our direct-service programs in New York City, Chicago, and the Bay Area and through our partnerships with local non-profit organizations that implement our model in 39 schools.
