Some More Information about Minds Matter…
Today, it seems that a college education is more important than ever. For some, attending a four year collegiate education is the forgone conclusion after completing high school. For many high achieving students in the Boston area from low-income families, however, this is not always a realistic expectation. Without the resources for tutoring, test preparation, study textbooks and other support, these students face an uphill battle to reach their highest academic potential in today’s competitive academic environment.
This is where Minds Matter comes in. The Boston chapter of this national non-profit organization is dedicated to helping these talented and underprivileged students to reach their goals of attending a four year college. We aim to help students who show initiative through a weekly mentoring program, aiding directly with developing academic skills and preparation for the college application process as well as answering the questions that come up for students navigating this complex time in their lives. In addition, the program provides professional SAT classes and sends each student to a collegiate summer program every year.
Of course, such a comprehensive program requires a great deal of financial support for each student. Each year, we provide the majority of the funding for this program through our annual Spring Soiree, which in Boston has become one of the largest charitable events aimed at our demographic. This year over 600 young professionals, most of which in their twenties, will join together at the Black Falcon Terminal in South Boston.
