Meet Some of Our Mentor/Mentee Pairs

Since 1999, iMentor has matched more than 11,000 students with mentors. Below are just a few examples of the strong mentoring relationships that are helping students graduate high school, succeed in college, and achieve their ambitions.

Ben and Miguel

It has been said that the difference between an obstacle and an opportunity is your attitude toward it. For iMentor student Miguel, it’s about opportunity.

Keisha and Dalyia

Keisha Carter was born and raised between New York City’s Harlem neighborhood and Teaneck, NJ. After attending college and law school outside of New York, she returned to the city for graduate school. “I grew up here and saw a need for mentors for African American students,” said Keisha. “I think it’s important for them to hear about people from their background who have gone on to college and been successful. It’s also important for young people to hear about overcoming struggles on the path to college.”

Peter and Darius

Peter Karl was about to begin his freshman year at Tulane University in August 2005 when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans.

Greg and Steven and Kristen and Tara

Less than a year after Greg Mucci started mentoring Steven, now a junior at Juan Morel Campos Secondary School, through iMentor, his wife Kristen signed up to mentor a student at the school as well.

Melissa and Yamslee

Yamslee, a senior at Bronx Preparatory High School, has been diligently working on the many facets of the college application process, such as studying for the SATs, asking her teachers for recommendation letters, and coming up with a topic for her personal statement.

Eric and Zachary

Zachary left his home in Jamaica for the first time just a few months before his 16th birthday.

Emily and Sadiya

As soon as Sadiya heard that her mentor, Emily, listened to Drake and Kanye West, she knew that her mentor would be someone she could really talk to.

Alex and Ian

Though he was in danger of failing math for a third time, 15-year-old Ian didn’t lack ability—what he needed was confidence.
