I hope you are inspired to donate to this amazing organization! As a Sophomore Team Lead, I am constantly inspired by the relationships between mentors and mentees. These students (mentees) work incredibly hard - not only because we expect them to, but because they set those high expectations for themselves. To continue supporting an organization primarily comprised of volunteers like myself, we rely on donors like you to help us fulfill our mission.

We believe that no student dedicated to earning a college education should be limited be their socioeconomic status. Minds Matter Boston empowers highly motivated, low-income students to achieve academic excellence and overcome barriers inhibiting opportunities for post-secondary education.
A three-year program beginning with students in the tenth grade of high school, Minds Matter Boston provides wrap-around services including 2:1 mentoring, professional ACT & Writing instruction, access to college-immersion summer programs and personalized college advising, to ensure these promising students gain college admission and experience college success. The length, depth, and variety of the interventions provided sets Minds Matter Boston apart from other college access programs and allows us to achieve unparalleled outcomes. Since its inception in 2003, 100% of Minds Matter Boston’s seniors have been accepted to a four-year college with generous financial aid.
