Minds Matter of Philadelphia is a non-profit mentoring program for high achieving, low-income high school students. Our goal is to guide Philadelphia students from sophomore year through graduation in gaining acceptance to college and preparing for real world 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. In addition to the mentor relationship, students benefit from SAT Prep, academic summer program participation and college application assistance.
