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.

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. 


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.
