Minds Matter Boston's 2019 Graduation

On Saturday, May 18th, Minds Matter Boston mentees, mentors, families, community members, and supporters gathered in Walker Memorial Center to celebrate the graduation and accomplishments of Minds Matter Boston's Class of 2019. Our keynote speaker, Anthony Jack, shared his experience navigating the unwritten rules of academia as a first generation college student at Amherst College and gave advice to our graduating seniors on how to succeed in their new environment. Above all, he encouraged the class of 2019 to remain authentic in their college careers and always reach back into their community to inspire their peers to reach higher. Seniors, we are incredibly honored to have been apart of your journey to college over the last three years. We are so grateful to call each one of you MMB alumni, and we look forward to watching your growth for years to come!

Give a Lifelong Gift Today. Donate to our Holiday Drive!

We asked Jada, alumna of MMB ‘12 and NYU ‘16 and current Program Associate at MMB, what Minds Matter means to her. She said that Minds Matter is lifelong.


Over the past 10 years, Jada’s MMB mentors have supported her from high school to her professional career. The lasting effect of the program inspired her return to MMB on staff and give back to the next generation. Donate today to make a lifelong impact on a young person.

On Wednesday, November 14th, our mentees got the opportunity to learn from and network with employees at BlackRock during a Career Exploration Night! Inspired by the panelists, a few students downloaded MarketWatch and built a "Minds Matter Boston" virtual portfolio where they can trade stocks and respond to real-time trends in the market. Thank you BlackRock for hosting us and encouraging the next generation of future traders! #BlackRock #CareerExploration #MMB


Minds Matter Career Panel

Last weekend, we welcomed 10 panelists into our classrooms to speak to our students about their career paths. Each panelist shared stories of their successes and failures, and offered sage networking advice to our students. Many students said that they saw themselves in these panelists and felt motivated to pursue their dreams of becoming scientists, entrepreneurs, and agents of social change. Thank you to our panelists, Maria Paredes, Piyali Mukherjee, Chris Hopkins, Enrique Pepen, Ruben Valera, Alexandra Rodman, Raphael Korang, Sade Phipps, Rita German, and Rich Doyle for taking the time to speak to our students and inspiring them to strive towards their goals. #mindsmatterboston #panelists #inspire
