Students who have graduated from Minds Matter

There’s no way I would have gone to the University of Illinois for a summer program without Minds Matter.

Jorge, Mentee

I love my mentors. Honestly, they are the best people.

Stevie, Mentee

The coolest part is that you get to be with someone from 10th – 12th grade and see them grow.

Troy, Mentor

To have the support from Minds Matter to say, we can do it, this is how it’s going to work and don’t worry about it, it is incredible.
