Celebrating Ten Years of Success
Minds Matter LA is celebrating our 10th year of helping low-income students achieve their dream of a college education. We can't do it without your generous support.
Since starting as a mentor with Minds Matter I have gained a sense of community. My mentee, Melanie, is so full of energy and eager to follow her dreams of attending college to pursue film or political science. Being apart of this program is allowing me to give support and guidance to the next generation which means a lot to me because I know how important education is and how it has aided me in getting this far in life . Minds Matter really is setting their students up for success and I am loving being a part of the initiave to provide opportunities to those in need.
Please give today. Your donation will help dreams come true. It goes twice as far with a matching grant from the All Ways Up Foundation.
