Organization Information

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.

Description

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).

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.
