The Incentive Mentoring Program provides disadvantaged high-school students facing drugs, violence, and poverty with both academic and non-academic support so that they can grow to be confident young adults, graduate high school, and go on to college. IMP aims to transform teenagers who are failing high school into Baltimore City 's most valuable role models. Besides receiving help academically, students also gain valuable life-skills and build meaningful relationships as they participate in social events and community service. While the overall high-school graduation rate in Baltimore is a dismal 38.5%, IMP has boasted a graduation rate of 100% since the program's founding in 2004. All participants have gone on to college. Currently, IMP works with students at Paul Laurence Dunbar High School in Baltimore and most of our volunteers are Johns Hopkins medical, public health, and nursing students. We hope that our program will one day expand to serve an even larger population.
