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.
Minds Matter is a three-year mentoring program that begins in students’ sophomore year of high school. Minds Matter offers its students a combination of individualized mentor support and group tutoring that provides students with the resources, information and guidance they need to gain admission to, enroll in and graduate from four-year colleges.
Since 2011, Minds Matter of Philadelphia has served more than 150 Philadelphia high school students.
Each year 100% of our students are accepted to a four-year college or university.
As a mentor, you will be paired with a Minds Matter student and a co-mentor, both of with whom you will meet with weekly at the Minds Matter Saturday sessions throughout the school year. To apply, please visit: https://mindsmatterphilly.org/volunteers/howto/
