Setting the facts straight…

We’ve been busy telling you about the latest icouldbe news and accomplishments… maybe we should backtrack a little and give you some basic statistics about the program.

  • Currently, icouldbe is working with over 1800 middle and high school students.
  • We have programs in 9 different states, as well as Washington D.C. – these include New York, New Jersey, New Hampshire, California, Colorado, Utah, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Texas.
  • We are partnered with 44 different schools, academies and/or youth organizations within 35 cities.
  • Icouldbe’s mentors have volunteered more than 3,500 hours providing students with guidance and support during this academic year. Mentees have logged over 8,000 hours utilizing the site’s college and career exploration resources and communication tools.

This brings us to a total of over 11,000 hours that users have spent communicating with one another – in the first half of the school year!
