Last month we had a student in this great program write an essay about not only the benefits of diversity but the student’s experience of a different culture. The Minds Matter program does things to help underprivileged students prepare for college and compete with students with better resources. MMXLII will be in attendance for the fundraiser and we think you should too. Hit the jump for more info and flyer.
Minds Matter of Los Angeles 3rd Annual Spring Fundraising Benefit – Join us for an intimate evening of cocktails, tastings, music auction and fun as we celebrate our first graduating class.
Minds Matter is a transformative program that inspires students by providing knowledge and skills necessary for unlocking their full potential and enhancing academic performance. Minds Matter was established in New York in 1991 by six Wall Street professionals to mentor and tutor inner-city high school students, as well as assist them with applications to competitive preparatory schools.
The evening will begin with a cocktail reception, at 8pm there will be a presentation from one of the board members and the unveiling of their new short video about the chapter. After video 1/2 graduating seniors from the program will speak about their experience. Displayed around the room will be collages of all of seniors including: pictures, details of summer programs/ colleges attended, quotes about the program.
