Minds Matter transforms the lives of accomplished high school students from low-income families by broadening their dreams and preparing them for college success. Our students are hand-selected by guidance counselors from more than a dozen local high schools and go through a rigorous application process. Once admitted, students are paired with two dedicated mentors. Our mentors are Philadelphia professionals who give their time while pursuing full-time careers or graduate degrees. Students are accepted into Minds Matter prior to their sophomore year and remain with the program until high school graduation.
