Deutsche Bank’s volunteering partner, iMentor, rang The Opening Bell at the historic New York Stock Exchange, in honor of National Mentoring Month.

In January, Deutsche Bank’s volunteering partner, iMentor, rang The Opening Bell at the historic New York Stock Exchange. President Caroline Kim Oh rang the bell in honor of National Mentoring Month. She was joined by several board members and mentor-mentee pairs, including Ricardo Rabathaly, a mentor who works at Deutsche Bank, and his mentee, Andres.

This special event was viewed by tens of millions of people around the world.  In addition to being broadcast live on CNN, Fox Business News and CNBC, the ceremony was also webcast online and projected onto the jumbo screen at the W Hotel in Times Square. “This is such a great opportunity,” Mr. Rabathaly said. “Not many people get to see the stock exchange up close, and this experience will make a lasting impact.” Andres agreed, saying “You have to see it in person to know how unique the experience is.”

Deutsche Bank first partnered with iMentor in 2006, and the relationship continues to grow. Current volunteer participation is over 50 employees, more than double that of previous years. The organization’s mission is to improve the lives of young people from underserved communities through innovative, technology-based approaches to mentoring. Using technology, curriculum, and targeted support to create a new, more powerful mentoring model, iMentor has transformed more than 20,000 lives over the last ten years. The high school graduation rate among their mentees is 83%, compared to New York City’s rate of only 61%.
