Minds Matter (
Minds Matter transforms the lives of accomplished high school students from low-income families by broadening their dreams and preparing them for college success.  Through a highly selective and rigorous 3-year academic mentoring program, Minds Matter students accomplish the extraordinary. 100% of Minds Matter program graduates are accepted into a four-year college. More than 70% of them attend some of our nation’s more selective colleges.  Powered by 1,900 volunteers nationwide, Minds Matter Chapters are located in 12 cities across the country, with a new Detroit chapter launching in the fall of 2016.  The national office of Minds Matter is located in Manhattan.
