We're looking for volunteer mentors for an extremely rewarding opportunity to work with motivated high school students on consistent Saturdays during the school year.

Join us as a mentor if you want to:

- Give back to the community and break the cycle of poverty
- Develop a fulfilling and mutually beneficial mentoring relationship with a motivated, driven high school student
- Be a part of an organization that has helped 100% of our students get into college with scholarships

Undergraduate degree required. Contact us or apply here: http://mindsmattercleveland.org/volunteers/

From Chris, Minds Matter Mentor:

"My mentees opened up my eyes on the community’s diversity and needs. Thanks to Minds Matter, I now have a better understanding of the challenges that inner city students have to face to gain academic success, as well as the important need to give back to our community."

Mission Statement

We provide students with the tools they need to overcome the education gap that holds back high-performing, low-income students so they can access and succeed at top colleges with little to no financial burden.


We equip high school students with the tools to gain acceptance to and graduate from a four-year university with minimal to no tuition cost burden by providing them critical resources - such as mentoring, tutoring, SAT and ACT test preparation, summer academic programs, and financial aid application assistance - to ensure both college access and success. Through our efforts, we help our students develop into tomorrow's leaders. We introduce them to a world of opportunity outside their neighborhoods and comfort zones. Minds Matter believes that no student dedicated to earning a college education should be limited by socioeconomic status.
