To reach young people everywhere with our model for college success, we partner with local nonprofits to implement our mentoring program in their own communities. We have a rich history of collaboration with Big Brothers Big Sisters local agencies, together serving 2,150 mentoring pairs in 16 cities.

"By partnering with iMentor, we get the benefit of a blended model that effectively leverages the ease of technology with the traditional mentoring practices that Big Brothers Big Sisters is known for. That mentors and students can conveniently use the curriculum to guide their online communication each week and meet in-person once-a-month makes this appealing for companies who want to provide their busy employees an opportunity to support Big Brothers Big Sisters."
