Welcome to Minds Matter Cleveland

mm2Minds Matter of Cleveland is a chapter of the national Minds Matter organization. Since its founding in New York City in 1991, the effectiveness of Minds Matter has been affirmed – 100 percent of its students have been accepted into a four-year college. The organization has expanded to 12 cities: Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Denver, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, Portland, San Francisco, Seattle, the Twin Cities, and Washington, D.C.

The Cleveland chapter established a strong organization since its founding in 2008. Our students made substantial improvements in their writing and critical thinking, math and SAT scores. Equally important is that 100 percent of our students gained admission to leading college summer programs. Operationally, the organization exceeded all of its goals by enrolling more students, recruiting more volunteers and raising more funds than initially planned.

Building upon this foundation of success, we expanded the organization. In September of 2014, we launched our seventh year of programming with 63 students and 200 volunteers!
