Helping 77,417 kids to excel - and counting
As we fundamentally change the education landscape in Indianapolis, we also make success a reality for more students every day - by putting great teachers in classrooms and great leaders in schools; helping low-income students to advance, rather than fall behind during the summer months; making college a reality for students who never imagined attending was possible, and much more. Since The Mind Trust's launch, more than 77,400 students have been impacted by our efforts. Here are a few of their stories.
JuDonne Hemingway was recruited to Indianapolis to become a teacher through Teach For America. She credits The Mind Trust for bringing TFA to Indianapolis and making her experience possible.
Sheila Akinleye discovered her passion for teaching after careers in engineering and field research, through The New Teacher Project, which The Mind Trust helped to recruit to Indianapolis. She now teaches plant and soil sciences at IPS' Arsenal Technical High School.
