Fall Fun at iMentor
The fall at iMentor is always an especially busy time, as our New York City and iMentor Interactive program teams work hard to build strong mentoring relationships between volunteers and students.
With so much hard work happening throughout the season, the iMentor team never forgets to have fun. Thanks to our Team Fun ambassadors from a variety of departments, fall is also a time full of laughter, celebrations, crazy costumes and culinary creativity.
On Halloween, iMentor held its fourth annual Halloween Showdown costume contest and dessert bake-off. The competition was fierce and participation was unprecedented. The overall winners were a cross-departmental group of X-Men. Our most dramatic group set off their Breakfast Club costumes with an impressive performance of a scene from the movie.
Before the Thanksgiving break, the iMentor staff came together for an incredible potluck lunch with a spread that included all of the trimmings, from turkey to turkey-shaped cupcakes. Select daring staff members entered the Iron Chef competition, calling for the most creative and tastiest uses of the secret ingredient: squash. The acorn squash tacos won awards for both presentation and most creative use of ingredients, while best taste for her butternut squash lasagna. The spirit of the season was in the air, as we celebrated our successes this year and our appreciation for our mentees, mentors, schools, partners, and fellow staff.
It’s been a great fall for the iMentor team, and we’re looking forward to what the New Year will bring.
