Our mission is to transform the lives of accomplished high school students by broadening their dreams and preparing them for college readiness and success.
The college aspiration-attainment gap:
The difference between students wanting to get a degree (aspiration) and actually receiving it (attainment).
Many low-income students have high aspirations when it comes to college. However, they often don’t have the means or preparation to enroll and succeed.
WHERE WE COME IN:
Minds Matter Chicago is a highly successful three-year program that empowers accomplished high school students from low-income families to achieve college readiness and success. We do this through intensive group academic instruction, personalized mentoring and summer enrichment programs.
