You earn the right to learn your mentees’ stories, their hopes, dreams, and fears.

Minds Matter Colorado is more than a college access and success program. It is more than a mentoring program. The blend of these two things is what makes this organization unique. Yes, our community of students, families, volunteer mentors and program leaders all come together in service of helping phenomenal young people navigate their journey to college success. But HOW we do it - by building close relationships over 3 years of regular, facilitated conversations and activities, leads to truly transformational relationships and community.
