For continued support of the College Ready Program, a five-year initiative which New Visions launched in partnership with iMentor to pair all incoming Freshmen at ten of their highest-need schools with a mentor whom they work with for the duration of their high school career. Mentor-mentee pairs build bonds by completing in-person and virtual engagement activities towards building skills and content knowledge necessary for college success. Funding will support their work with two of the ten participating schools – Frederick Douglass Academy II and the Bronx High School for Law and Community Service. Through this partnership, they aim to increase post-secondary awareness, readiness, and support so that greater numbers of their students will graduate from high school, enroll in college, and have the skills to persist in college and get their degree.
