Keisha Forbes joins the MENTOR New York Board of Directors with a strong commitment to mentorship, which she believes is a crucial part of her identity.

Mentoring allows me an opportunity to have a positive impact on young people and in some instances change the trajectory of their lives for the better,” said Forbes.
“Keisha Forbes joins our Board of Directors at a crucial moment in time when young people are facing unprecedentedly high academic barriers, mental health challenges, and loneliness and isolation. Her expertise, commitment, and passion for business and mentoring will help us continue to strategically scale the movement in New York wherever young people live, learn, work, and play. I am excited to have her as a partner in this work,” said Brenda Jimenez, CEO of MENTOR New York.
