The school year is winding down, but here at icouldbe.org we’re already looking ahead! We’re ready to sign up new schools for the 2010-2011 school year to include the icouldbe.org program into their curriculum.
If you’re thinking about introducing the icouldbe.org program to your school, here are a few advantages to keep in mind:
- When your school uses icouldbe.org, students are provided with dedicated volunteers who work with them on a 30 Unit, research-backed, career development and college preparation curriculum.
- By opening up career and educational opportunities that students’ might not be aware of and providing students with connections to dedicated and committed role models, your school can provide two to three volunteer ‘counselors’ per student to prepare them for their lives after high school.
- Students will improve their writing skills, increase their self-efficacy and develop critical research and technology skills.
- Membership costs are highly subsidized thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, and are offered at extremely reduced rates to public schools.
- Once you integrate e-mentoring into your existing curriculum, we will manage every aspect of the program – it will require no additional planning or staffing at your school.
E-mentoring is proven to be a successful way to encourage students to make the most out of high school and look positively to the future.

We hope to see you next year!
