Descripción

Minds Matter NYC (MMNYC) connects driven and determined students from low-income families with people, preparation, and possibilities to succeed in college, create their future, and change the world! MMNYC is the founding and largest of the 14 Minds Matter chapters nationally. Since 1991, every Minds Matter student has been admitted to a four-year college. Their success is rooted in holistic programming and a unique model that puts dedicated volunteers at the forefront of the work with students.

In recent years, MMNYC has experienced tremendous growth — doubling the size of the student body (now reaching 500+ students), expanding the size of the volunteer corps and staff, and increasing the annual budget to $3MM. As part of the 2025 Strategic Plan, MMNYC dramatically expanded both its service population and scope of services — expanding from a 3-year college access program to a premier 7+ year college and career attainment program serving students from high school through college and into careers.
