Closing The Achievement Gap
Minds Matter Is Preparing Students For A Brighter Future
Minds Matter, Inc. is a nationally recognized college access mentoring non-profit serving high-achieving, low income students in thirteen cities across the United States.
Since its founding in New York City in 1991, the effectiveness of Minds Matter has been affirmed — 100 percent of our students have been accepted into a four-year college. The organization has expanded to thirteen cities, including Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Denver, Detroit, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Portland, San Francisco, Seattle, the Twin Cities, and Washington, D.C.
The 2016-2017 school year is the thirteenth year for Minds Matter of Denver (“MMD”) maintaining our high level of success. We have graduated 80 students, and 100% of them have been accepted to colleges with scholarships ranging from CU and CSU to Cornell and Columbia. The Denver chapter, founded in 2004, is the culmination of a grass-roots effort to level educational opportunities for disadvantaged students.
