Most of us have been very lucky in our lives to have the support of amazing schools, teachers, and parents that encourage us and teach us tips and tricks along the way. Many people obviously aren't as fortunate - hard work and high achievement doesn't always equal opportunity. Minds Matter is changing this.
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.
Pictured below is Julia, my 'Mentee', who has more intelligence and grit than I could ever wish for. She's had some bad luck, but has shown a great deal of courage in not only pursuing her studies, but excelling in them. There are similar stories, e.g. kids going to medical school who otherwise would have been pressured into a lifetime of working at Starbucks.
Despite MM being a 100% efficient non-profit, the summer programs and tutoring still cost money. Please share any amount you can spare - you'll help someone else become as lucky as you are.
