Celebrating Ten Years of Success
Ten years ago I was blessed with the amazing opportunity to help start the Los Angeles chapter of Minds Matter. Since then, we have enabled over of a 100 students achieve their dreams of pursuing a higher education. This is done through a rigorous 3-year program of mentoring and tutoring where our students literally sign up for an extra day of school (on most Saturdays) throughout the majority of their high school career to prepare for college. The experiences I have shared and the lessons I have learned from these incredible students while helping them through this program are too many to count, but I can definitively say they have changed my life in more ways than one.
During this season of giving and charity, please consider helping us support our kids with a donation and help us meet our lofty fundraising goal of $100K to celebrate our 10-year anniversary. See below for more detail on what we do.
Your donation will go twice as far with a matching grant from the All Ways Up Foundation.
Help our students to Aspire, Achieve, and Attain
Minds Matter is a rigorous three-year tutoring and mentoring program preparing students for college success. We provide opportunities to attend academic summer programs where students take college-level classes and experience college life. Dedicated instructors and mentors work with our students to achieve academic success and guide them on choosing the right college and helping to navigate the financial aid and scholarship application process. Getting students into college is just the beginning. We continue to support our graduates through college and into their professional careers.
Our success is in the numbers
