Minds Matter of Detroit

Posted By: Matt Martinez (June 18, 2019)
Minds Matter of Detroit's mission is transforming the lives of accomplished Detroit high school students from low-income families by broadening their dreams and preparing them for college success. We work with Detroit high school students who are doing well in school and have a desire to go to college and pair them with dedicated mentors from the community as well as hold academic sessions where we have volunteer teachers teach subjects outside of their normal classwork on Saturdays at University of Detroit Mercy. We also send them to a college program during the summer after their sophomore and junior years. We have sent students to Harvard, Columbia, Oxford, USC, Georgetown, Northwestern, Cal along with many others. Everything we do is on a volunteer basis. Your contribution will go a long way to helping a wonderful, hardworking student achieve their dreams. Thank you for your consideration.
