volunteers nationwide.


of Volunteers Feel that Being Part of Minds Matter is a Meaningful Experience

Minds Matter could not exist without the hard work and commitment of our volunteers nationwide. Our dedicated volunteer mentors grow from their experiences with students, enjoy the tangible satisfaction of seeing their students succeed, and gain a valuable resume asset and a network of like-minded professionals.


Minds Matter offers community for both volunteers and students through lasting and impactful relationships, built on the foundation of personal interactions. It is not uncommon for mentor/mentee relationships between volunteers and their students to continue beyond the three-year program and into the students’ college and post-collegiate experiences. Our volunteers are a motivational powerhouse, always available to provide a listening ear and an encouraging word to the students they mentor.

Volunteer Spotlight

I want to thank Minds Matter Washington, D.C. for not only welcoming me with open arms, but also for being my refuge in a new city. Minds Matter has helped me acclimate to my new life in DC, and I hope to do the same for the mentees on their journey to college.
