2016 Grad Class - College Shirts
Minds Matter LA 2016 Grads - Ready for College

Minds Matter connects driven and determined students from low-income families with the people, preparation, and possibilities to succeed in college, create their future, and change the world.

Are you an empathetic listener? Do you enjoy self-reflection? Are you comfortable being vulnerable? Can you listen without trying to "rescue" others’ feelings? If you said yes to all of the above, be a Connections Facilitator! As a facilitator, you co-lead a 1-hour Connections circle for a group of 10-15 high school students each Saturday morning. You also collaborate with other facilitators and meet 1-2x/month to ensure consistency of program, share best practices and make modifications as necessary. As Minds Matter expands its Connections program, you may be asked to co-lead a community circle 2x/year for the greater Minds Matter community. No prior experience is necessary.

Time commitment: Facilitator training is 16 hours that take place either 1 or 2 Saturdays at the end of the summer. Attend every Saturday session for 2 hours in the morning. Spend 1 hour weekly to lesson plan.
