We have a group of AMAZING women who will serve as mentors this school year. The majority are current students or recent graduates of Bowie State University, Howard University, and University of Maryland—majoring in everything from finance, to nursing, to theater. We’re super excited that these dynamic women have committed to volunteering their time to help us effect change in the lives of our mentees. Get to know a few of them below!
Bria Entinge is a federal government accountant with a B.S. and M.B.A. from two profound HBCUs. She has worked with youth within her community for over ten years. Bria joined Imara Roose because she has a strong passion for mentorship, and intends to use her experience to transform the next generation.
Teneika Williams is excelling in her career with the federal government. She is a first generation college graduate and also earned her masters.
When she was younger, her mentor made a huge impact on her life and she wants to do the same for other young women through Imara Roose.
We’ve closed our mentor class for the fall semester, but please continue to apply and share this opportunity. We’ll be accepting more mentors for the spring!
We're looking for individuals and organizations to join our movement as community partners—helping advance our mission by amplifying awareness, recruiting volunteers, and fundraising. Click here to learn more!
