Our Impact


Since 2006, The Mind Trust has been on a journey to transform Indianapolis’ education landscape into a place ripe with opportunities for every student.  We’ve made tremendous progress:

  • Recruited some of the nation’s best talent organizations – including Teach For America and TNTP (The New Teacher Project) – to Indianapolis to build a pipeline of world-class teachers and school leaders.
  • Enticed talented innovators from Indianapolis and across the country to launch break-the-mold education ventures that address critical needs in local schools.
  • Empowered education leaders to start and expand quality public schools in Indianapolis.
  • Helped create an environment in which these schools, teachers and nonprofits can thrive through robust efforts to engage the community and improve the public policy landscape.

This work already has impacted tens of thousands of Indianapolis students.  An importantly it has made Indianapolis one of the best positioned cities in the country to achieve lasting, systematic change that creates better opportunities for all K-12 students.
