Prodigy is designed to engage students using adaptive technology to cater to each individual. The app’s personalized approach identifies gaps in students’ understanding and works with them by pulling them back to prerequisite skills and then scaffolding them forward through more difficult concepts. And as a web-based game, Prodigy can be accessed at school and at home on virtually any device.

MentorHub is partnering with the Prodigy: Kids Math Game app to provide our mentees with access to grades 1-8 math content through this fun and educational game that is backed by research.


MindTrails is an online intervention designed for individuals struggling with anxiety. During the program, users learn about anxious thinking and how thinking in new ways can help users feel better. When used once a week for five weeks, users build new skills for thinking about potentially anxiety-provoking situations in new and more flexible ways. When users apply their new thinking skills to their own lives, these flexible thinking patterns can lead to reduced feelings of anxiety in day-to-day life.

MindTrails is currently available for users 18+ and is available for free on computer and mobile browsers. A teen version is currently being developed specifically for MentorHub users!

MindTrails was developed by a team of psychologists and engineers at the University of Virginia. The team is always seeking to make improvements guided by science, so there are always research studies going on on the MindTrails website.
