About this Project:
Mentee is a non-profit pairing children from immigrant or financially insecure families, Title I schools, and schools with test scores below national averages, in New York City with a student mentor who tutors the mentee in an interactive, engaging environment outside the classroom.
Mentee not only pairs high school mentors one-on-one with mentees, but brings two mentees with two mentors in a cohort to engage in lively games and activities to inspire a love for literature and school. Cohorts meet in their local New York Public Library branch.
Tutors connect with student mentees via the Mentee app, designed for creating a safe, friendly space with decorative backgrounds, special effects, and tools for tutoring (including easier screen-sharing features with mark-up features for the Mentee) through video call. The app extends the quality education mentors provide beyond the lessons with access to tutoring anywhere, at anytime.
