icouldbe is an interactive and collaborative e-mentoring program for academically at-risk and low-income youth that is unlike any other e-mentoring program available today. icouldbe achieves its mission through the monumental commitment of thousands of mentors and mentees who join together to build trusted and nurturing relationships on a safe, secure and highly advanced social software platform.
As a mentor, you can interact with your mentee whenever you have time. Youll be notified every time your mentee needs your advice or feedback on the activities - usually just one day per week. Mentors can plan on spending up to one hour per week throughout the school year responding to your mentees. To ensure your busy work, family and travel schedules wont prevent you from being a great mentor, you can respond from any computer in any location at any time of day or night.
icouldbe has built a highly interactive technology platform with structured, fun and engaging activities for mentors and mentees to work on that focus on self-discovery, career and college exploration and planning and financial literacy. At icouldbe, youll find great multi-media content - videos, web resources, inspiring notable quotes, and much more to enhance your mentoring experience and help your mentees make meaningful academic and life decisions.
icouldbe has served over 30,000 middle and high school students since 2000, and as a leader in the e-mentoring field, we have seen incredible results. Our mentees demonstrate significant improvements in their confidence to explore, plan for and achieve their academic and career aspirations. And, its you - their mentors - who make all the difference!
