We build families that transcend barriers by recognizing that everyone brings something of value to the table. Everyone is a mentor. Everyone is a mentee.

Welcome to IMP!


THE INNOVATION: The Incentive Mentoring Program uses a “family-style” approach to foster the transformation of both underperforming high school students and university-based volunteers into self-motivated, resourceful, and socially aware leaders committed to a higher purpose of their own.

THE SUCCESS: To date, 100% of IMP students have been retained to the program and have received a high school diploma or equivalent degree. IMP students have performed thousands of hours of community service, primarily in Baltimore City, but also in rural India, the Dominican Republic, and Nicaragua. Since the founding of the program in 2004, over 900 IMP volunteers have also gained invaluable leadership experience, professional development, and personal growth.
