Our Mission

Inspiring Minds empowers students to succeed and thrive in school and life by developing trusted relationships with community members who are knowledgeable of the culturally responsive, academic, and socio-emotional needs necessary for student success.

Our Vision

Inspiring Minds is an antiracist organization committed to closing equity gaps based on race, ethnicity, first language, and economic status that impact RI students and families.

Our Values

  • Student-centered. Student success and well-being are the primary drivers behind our actions and decisions.
  • Equity-motivated. Racial equity is the just path forward for the organization, communities, and students we serve; therefore we commit to antiracist practices.
  • Asset-framed. The diverse, lived experiences of our students and their families are assets we acknowledge and promote.
  • Relationship-focused. Students thrive when they are connected to and supported by caring and committed adults.
  • Community-grounded. Inspiring Minds values community and invites community members to help create a supportive village for schools. 
  • Expectations-driven. A critical strategy for closing the equity gap is to actively support a culture of high expectations, continuous growth, and improvement for students, schools, and Inspiring Minds.
  • Evidence-based. We use qualitative and quantitative data and research to inform our organizational decisions and spark dynamic and innovative responses.

Hi there, I volunteered a few semesters ago for my competency course at CCRI. I am currently taking a Non-Profit course at RIC and am presenting about Inspiring Minds with my group. I was wondering if you could share some information on how you obtain your resources and what that entails.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

Thank you in advance,
Edwin Dougal

Is anybody willing to let me join there carpool to Frank D Spaziano Elementary on Tuesdays from 9-12. It would be greatly appreciated.
Is there anyway anyone can carpool me to a school in Providence? I am waiting to choose my school until I have a carpool. Please help!
I subbed music at Central High. It was fun.
Hi Mark, unfortunately no. Inspiring Minds worked with the district to determine which schools we would work with in the upcoming school year. The good news is you may continue to volunteer at the high school through the district. They have a process, similar to ours. You can contact the office of family and community partnerships at 456-0686 for more information. If you'd like to join us at the elementary level, we would be happy to have you.
