Our Mentors

Minds Matter mentors are college-educated professionals and graduate students in the Twin Cities area. They are compassionate, enthusiastic, and committed to developing a strong mentoring relationship with a high-achieving high school student. Additionally, our mentors are passionate about dismantling the barriers for our low-income students to attend the college of their choice.

Our mentors are paired in a pod of three mentors to two students and spend three years meeting with their mentees (sophomore - senior year in high school) in a structured session each Saturday during the school year. Mentors will support their students by not only being a caring advocate for them but also a resource as they navigate the college search process.
