Every student deserves a champion, and every college graduate can be one with iMentor

iMentor is teaming up with Baltimore City Public Schools to match first-generation high school students with college-educated mentors who help them navigate the journey to and through college and other post-secondary career pathways. iMentor believes that every student deserves a champion and is looking for mentors like you. We make it easy for busy professionals to mentor by providing a guided playbook, time-efficient communication resources, and staff support along the way.  


Mentor Time Commitment:  

Volunteers are matched with one high school student over a three-year period.  

Volunteers send one weekly email to their mentee and attend one monthly, in-person pair event at their mentee’s school during the academic school year. Pair events are hosted in the evening after normal business hours.  


To become a mentor, visit to start your mentor application, attend an upcoming new and prospective mentor Orientation or email .  


Please note: Mentors must have completed a 2- or 4-year college degree and be 21 years of age and older.
