How NYC Mentors.org can help you with high school admissions:

Since NYC has one of the most competitive high school admissions, which some claim is harder than that of college, we aim to be a potential solution to the growing problem of inequality that severely affects those who are underserved in our community.

By pairing high-achieving underserved middle school students with experienced high school mentors, we are paving a path for success for them by the time they apply to high school in New York City.
