Mission Statement

Hi. We’re a college access mentoring non-profit that helps high-achieving low-income students get into college. And we're 100% successful: that means *every* graduate of our program has gotten into a four-year college or university WITH scholarships.

Description

The reason we're so successful -- 100% college acceptance WITH scholarships -- is volunteers like you. And they're awesome

Some of our teammates volunteer because they're focused on the quality of education, and they’re worried about the Colorado Paradox: Colorado is Top 5 states in the country in terms of highest educated population (74% of jobs in 2020 will require a post-high school degree or certification), but we're Bottom 5 in terms of graduating our own students (only 22% of CO high school students are on track to get any post-high school degree or certification).

Other volunteers work with us because they’ve progressed in their careers, and they’re looking for opportunities to give back, but they’re concerned about finding a way to have a direct, measurable impact on the life of a young person. They want to be able to sign up for a volunteer activity they can put in their calendars, show up, and know they’re making a measurable, tangible difference, and they're frustrated they haven't found that yet.

And some volunteers join us is because they want to expand their professional networks with a purpose, while giving back at the same time.


If any of those sound like you, let's talk.

Would you recommend Minds Matter of Denver, Inc.?

I have volunteered for Minds Matter of Denver for the past 3 years. Minds Matter is an outstanding organization that serves students in high school who excel at academic achievements despite challenging situations. As a mentor, I have had the opportunity to directly guide and assist students in high school whose goals are to attend college. I have been rewarded with watching our students achieve academic success. Minds Matter is a very rewarding experience and I highly recommend volunteering your time with them for anyone who enjoys helping students.
