iMentor’s mission is to improve the lives of young people from underserved communities through innovative, technology-based approaches to youth mentoring and education. iMentor works closely with public school teachers and after-school programs to bring the iMentor program to over 400 students in New York City each year. After partnering with a site, iMentor matches students one-on-one with carefully screened and trained adult mentors. Pairs then communicate at least once or twice a week via email and meet in person four to six times a year at iMentor-sponsored events. iMentor provides a unique mentoring experience by incorporating technology with traditional face-to-face mentoring. iMentor focuses on mentoring, technological and literacy skills and creating opportunities for students and teachers.

MENTORING USA

5 Hanover Square
17th Floor
New York, NY  10004

Founded in 1987 by then New York State First Lady, Matilda Raffa Cuomo, Mentoring USA (MUSA) provides structured, one-to-one mentoring in New York City to particularly "at risk" populations:young children who are at risk of educational failure, children in foster care, children who have experienced trauma, and children who have been homeless or have recently immigrated to this country. Children succeed, despite enormous personal, economic, or societal obstacles, do so because caring, competent adults who believe in them are a consistent part of their life. MUSA's goal is to supply such links to children before it is too late, in the form of early, consistent, frequent and supported attention by trained adult mentors.
