icouldbe.org is an award-winning online mentoring program connecting high school students from diverse communities with mentors from across the country — in the process cultivating meaningful relationships between students and e-mentors, and helping the students to explore their interests and dreams for the future. Since 2000, icouldbe.org has used their research-backed curriculum to help 20,000 students discover their passions and take action to realize their career and educational goals.
Kate Schrauth is the Executive Director of icouldbe.org; she’s been working with at-risk students since 1990, when she founded the Artists for Humanity program in Boston. E-mentoring has significantly emerged in recent years, and in her visit to the Learning Matters podcast, Kate discusses the model for the program, the importance of mentoring, the organization’s fundraising model, and much more.
