• Description of Resource:

    Imua is a data management and communication tool that is designed to empower educational, youth development, and mentoring organizations to monitor student and mentor progress towards achieving organizational goals. The resource is currently in beta testing and the developer is looking for programs to implement the system to help further refine the tool. The tool offers flexibility to be helpful to mentoring programs that operate in different settings and with varying goals.

    At a basic level, the tool seeks to provide program staff, mentors, and youth with real-time information about youth’s academics, community service, testing, and extracurricular activities. It also allows students to ask questions of mentors and staff. Its reporting features, furthermore, are designed to help trigger targeted support to individual matches or specific groups of mentors and youth.


    This resource is intended to track mentee progress toward college readiness in a number of domains, while also facilitating mentor-youth and staff-mentor communication. It can also support program evaluation activities.
