“Minds Matter created a path of confidence, preparation, and 100 percent certainty for me to attend a four-year university.” - Christian, who is attending University of California Berkeley as a Regents’ and Chancellor’s scholar
Beginning the sophomore year of high school, our students work with their mentors and tutors every Saturday throughout the school year to develop academic performance and leadership skills necessary for college success. Throughout the program, students gain confidence and ambition, while strengthening skills in writing, critical thinking, test-taking, and mathematics. They flourish into young adults who are ready and excited to succeed in college. Between their sophomore and junior years, students attend summer programs at colleges and universities across the country or abroad.
Our results are impressive. 100% of Minds Matter graduates have been accepted to a four-year university. 90% of our students are first in their families to attend college. Our students typically score 368 SAT points higher than the national average for low-income students.
"Having an entire community I could talk to about college and my career options was a huge factor in helping me prepare for college.” - Barbara, who is attending University of California San Diego as an All Ways Up Scholar
Maybe there was someone who believed in and inspired you to become who you are today. That’s what Minds Matter's tutors and mentors do every week. They encourage our students to be successful throughout their intensive three-year program.
“Minds Matter has made me more confident with myself, strengthened my leadership skills, and enabled me to dream big. I've had experiences that I would have never even imagined, such as traveling across the nation to prestigious summer programs where I was immersed in a diverse environment." - Melisa, who is attending Harvard University as a Gates Millennium Scholar
It's because of people like you our students can achieve so much. Your contribution is critical to providing the funds necessary to make our students' college goals a reality.
