2017 FALL NEWSLETTER
Dear Friends and Supporters,
Minds Matter is back in session! Our seniors are building balanced college lists, our juniors are reflecting on their summer programs, and our new sophomores are preparing for their first session this Saturday.
This year, we are serving 88 students - our largest class to date -and we have over 185 volunteers donating their time every Saturday. We even have a waitlist of volunteer mentors for each of the classes!
By enhancing our program with an expansion of our Writing and Critical Thinking course to sophomores and juniors, and adding the support of a Program Director, we will be able to provide the students with even more comprehensive programming.
We could not undertake these student, programming and staff additions without your generous support. We thank you, and look forward to your continued commitment to our organization and the students of Boston.
Rachel Kanter, Executive Director
