Minds Matter of Los Angeles provides a rigorous colllege prep academic program for bright, motivated high school students from low-income families earning less than $25,000 per year. As a mentor, you will help your student manage the various projects that are part of this life-changing program, such as applying to summer programs at universities across the country.
You will work as a pair of mentors with a single student, meeting with your student every Saturday during the school year from 12:30-2:30pm. The Minds Matter year starts Sept 9 for the Juniors and Sept 23 for the sophomores, so you will have a chance to jump right in and get started soon!
Since 1991, 100% of Minds Matter graduates have been accepted to a 4-year college or university
Over 90% of our students will be the first in their families to graduate from college
- Students join the program as sophomores in high school
