You’re invited

Join us for a free Education Tour at a local public school to go behind-the-scenes and get a deeper understanding of what The Mind Trust does and connect with local educators and students.

We visit a different school each quarter to showcase a variety of models. It might be a school within Indianapolis Public Schools’ boundaries launched by one of our Fellows or another great school in the district that more people should know about.

We choose schools for education tours because they have strong academic results, innovative practices, connections with their surrounding community, and pursue equity for all students.

What to expect

Your morning will start at 8:45 a.m. with an optional networking breakfast, followed by a presentation and tour of the school.

During the tour, you’ll have a chance to meet teachers, visit classrooms, talk to students, find out how the school works, and learn what you can do to get involved.

Each tour typically wraps up by 10:30 a.m.

Education tour partners

Our education tours are co-sponsored by Indianapolis Public Schools, UNCF, 100 Black Men of Indianapolis, La Plaza, and The Expectations Project.

Currently, The Mind Trust has paused quarterly, in-person Education Tours due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Be the first to hear about upcoming Education Tours by subscribing to our email newsletter.
