The mentoring component consists of pairing our students with young professionals who have been through the college application process and who can help the students navigate the steps and requirements as they go through it. Our mentors provide individual support and guidance, allowing each student to fulfill his or her potential and make the leap to college.


Sessions take place on Mondays and are 2.5 hours long

The mentoring component of sessions is held from 6-8:30 p.m. at Denver West High School campus.

There are approximately 25 sessions throughout the school year. 

Mentors are expected to attend 85% of the 25 sessions.


Minds Matter of Denver is 99.5% volunteer-based. We have a single paid Executive Director, but the rest of our team consists of over 200 professionals who represent many leading companies in the Greater Denver area.
