The iMentor high school curriculum provides you and your mentee with various opportunities to connect and reflect on your mentee's highest career aspiration through the pathway of higher education. Our students attend weekly class sessions, led by a Program Manager, where they will write each week to you, their mentor. Students also attend monthly events and will work on projects with you during the school year.
Four design principles serve as the foundation of the learning experiences. These design principles guide the activities and reflections in which you and your mentee engage throughout the program.
All of the curricular activities/engagements are designed to strengthen your relationship with your mentee over time. The curriculum fosters an equitable, trusting, productive, and purposeful relationship.
During the 9th and 10th grade programs, the curriculum focuses on college readiness, and during the 11th and 12th grade programs the curriculum focuses on college transition.
The curriculum has been designed for you to learn about what your mentee did in class and how you can best support your mentee. This information will help you to grow your relationship with your mentee by advancing closeness, cultural atunement, comfort in leveraging support, consistency, and commitment. We believe that you are a central driver in your mentee's journey to college and the curriculum is designed to support you to support your mentee.
