Apply To Be a MEntor

Minds Matter of Boston is volunteer-driven organization. Our team is comprised of approximately 200 professionals who represent many leading companies in the Greater Boston area.

Transform a young student's life by supporting their college dreams. Be the catalyst for helping a student become the first in his or her family to attend college.


Each student is paired with two mentors with whom they meet for two hours every Saturday during the school year to work on essays, summer program selection, and college lists. Our mentors provide individual support and guidance, allowing each student to fulfill his or her potential and make the leap to college.

“In order to be a mentor, and an effective one, one must care. You must care. You don't have to know how many square miles are in Idaho, you don't need to know what is the chemical makeup of chemistry, or of blood or water. Know what you know and care about the person, care about what you know and care about the person you're sharing with…”

-Maya Angelou

"The most valuable aspect of Minds Matter is the mentors. Mentors at Minds Matter truly care about you and they want you to succeed in the long run."

- Minds Matter Senior Mentee
