Mission Statement

Our mission is to transform the lives of accomplished high school students from low-income families by broadening their dreams and preparing them for college success.

Description

Minds Matter mentees are low-income, high-potential high school students. Each mentee is paired with two dedicated, college-educated mentors, who provide personalized, ongoing support over the course of three years, starting the mentee’s sophomore year. Every non-holiday Saturday during the school year, mentees attend four-hour sessions. In the mornings, test prep and writing and critical thinking instructors guide them through standardized test prep and instruction in how to write, think, and articulate themselves better. In the afternoons, the mentors arrive for two hours of mentoring, bonding, "what’s going on in the world" discussions, the "great debate" series, planning of classes and extracurricular activities, summer program and financial aid applications, college preparation, and other enrichment, college readiness, and mentoring activities. Over the summers, mentees attend academic, cultural, or leadership programs throughout the United States and the world, all funded by Minds Matter.
