ORGANIZATION: Minds Matter Colorado


At Minds Matter Colorado, we know that you want to make a difference. You see the world around you and you know you can make it better, you’re just looking for a clear way to make that impact.

What you may not know is that only 1 out of 4 low-income Colorado kids will go to a four-year college.

If you think that's shocking and unfair, we agree. We believe in a meritocracy -- hard-working kids should succeed and income shouldn't matter.

Here's how you can make that difference: (1) Invest in our students, (2) Stay engaged in their journey, and (3) Watch them head to college. The MMCO program is a 2 - 3 year committment where you're matched with 2 high performing high school students to support them through the MMCO program and onto college!

Apply to Mentor a student now or join an upcoming virtual info session to learn more.

About Minds Matter Colorado


1391 Speer Blvd, Ste 710, Denver, CO 80204, US

Mission Statement

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.


What We Do: Our approach is pretty simple. We recruit accomplished students with undeniable potential to participate from their sophomore through senior years. We then pair them with a cadre of passionate, intelligent, dedicated volunteers who mentor the same two students for three years until graduation. We hold weekly after-school sessions during the school year focused on academic readiness (writing, critical thinking, communication, community leadership) and college preparation (summer programs, SAT prep, college and financial aid applications).
