"Knowing that you have a support group that will hold you accountable really makes a difference."

We're on a mission to ensure all our students in Colorado earn college choice.

At Minds Matter Colorado, we’re on a mission to prove that it’s access, not ability, that limits college choice for many qualified students. So we connect bright students from low-income households with the relationships and resources they need to expand their post-secondary educational horizons. Our unique approach combines three years of mentorship with committed volunteers, weekly college-prep instruction and access to summer programs at colleges across the country. As a result, 100 percent of our graduates complete high school on time and are accepted to four-year colleges and universities with scholarships.

  • 100% of our graduates attend summer programs on college campuses after 10th/11th grades
  • 100% of our graduates are accepted into four year colleges and universities
