Mentors and Mentees rock the vote!
iMentor kicked off the "Step UP and Register to VOTE" event with seniors at Careers in Sports in September! Eligible mentees completed their voter registration applications with their mentors while younger mentees signed "Voter Registration Pledge Cards" promising to register to vote when they become of age. During the event, all pairs participated in a group discussion about politics and the election. Mentees were passionate about many issues including the war in Iraq, immigration reform, and healthcare. Mentors also had the opportunity to share their views on voting and important issues in the election. All the pairs received packets with information on the impact of the youth vote as well as online resources to stay informed with election coverage.
Pairs from Bronx Academy of Letters will also "Step UP and Register to VOTE" as part of their October kick-off event.
