dedication and commitment of over 1,900
volunteers nationwide.

90% of Volunteers Feel that Minds Matter is a Meaningful Volunteer Experience

Minds Matter of Seattle is a 100% volunteer-run organization. Virtually all of our donated funds go straight to funding our mentees’ summer programs. We would not be able to provide our extensive programming and resources to our mentees without the dedication of our volunteers.

Minds Matter meets every non-holiday Saturday during the school year (September through May) in an office building in downtown Seattle, at 3rd & University, right above the University Street light rail station.
