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.
Minds Matter of Portland, chartered in 2006, is a three-year mentoring program that begins in students’ sophomore year of high school. We offer a combination of individualized mentor support and group tutoring that provides these high-achieving young with the resources, information and guidance they need to gain admission to, enroll in and graduate from four-year colleges. Since our start, 100% of our students have accepted to a four-year college or university.
Each year Minds Matter of Portland serves 54+ students with the help of over 100 mentors, and a volunteer staff of 37 focused on curriculum, administration, logistics, and fundraising.
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://www.mindsmatterportland.org/volunteers.html
