Volunteer Opportunity

iMentor is seeking college-educated Chicagoans to mentor students from public high schools in Chicago's low-income communities. The guidance of a mentor can empower a young person to graduate high school, succeed in college, and achieve their ambitions.

Using iMentor’s dedicated curriculum and staff support, mentors and students work together, in-person and online, to develop strong personal relationships, nurture a college aspiration, navigate the college application process, and build critical skills that lead to college success.

Mentors devote 4-6 hours per month to mentoring, sending one weekly email and attending one in-person meeting each month. Through these activities, mentors will develop a supportive mentoring relationship that will last for 3 years and guide a mentee through iMentor’s college-readiness curriculum and the college application process.
