Mind Matter Bay Area for Low-Income 9th Graders
Minds Matter Bay Area (MMBay) is an education nonprofit focused on providing high-achieving, low-income students in San Francisco with three years of FREE college prep resources and access to pre-college summer programs. They also provide dedicated mentors and test-prep instructors who want to help them get into top colleges in the US.
Their applications are open!
Application deadline is Friday, April 7, 2023. They will also be hosting our first virtual info session on Tuesday, January 24, 2023 at 7:00 PM, which is open to all interested students and their parents (counselors and teachers also welcome!). They'll go over a little more about the program and attendees will also get to hear from a current mentee and get all of their questions answered! The link to register for that info session is here.
