LAFashionWeek.net Scholarship Initiative
LAFashionWeek.net is partnering with select Los Angeles-based programs to help promote education in the Los Angeles area. Our first program is Minds Matter of Los Angeles.
Los Angeles is proud to be the seventh of eight chapters in the national Minds Matter organization. In addition to Los Angeles, Minds Matter has established chapters in New York, Boston, Denver, Chicago, Portland, and Cleveland. San Francisco, like Los Angeles, just launched in October 2010.
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 provides a rigorous academic program for bright, motivated high school students from low income families earning less than $25,000 per year.
Minds Matter students work with their mentors and tutors every Saturday throughout the school year to develop leadership skills and enhance academic performance in math and critical thinking and writing necessary for college success.
