ORGANIZATION: Minds Beyond Measure

Image_202204220956

Mission Statement:

Minds Beyond Measure (MBM), a nonprofit, strives to inspire purpose and passion, to empower and cultivate great minds in children, youth and teachers to improve educational outcomes in New York and developing countries.

Background of Our Organization:

Minds Beyond Measure (MBM), is a nonprofit, newly established in 2019. It was birthed from the founder's traveling experiences and living abroad across Asia, and seeing a lack of educational resources and the lack of access to education in some very impoverished communities. The journey included training teachers, teaching children and youth, visiting rural schools with limited or no resources, experiencing children and youth who were hungry for small things, often taken for granted in the Western world, such as pencils and paper to write and books to read. This experience then evolved into a passion to serve the underserved, at risk and provide access to quality education for both teachers and students through pathways that inspire for life. This is when MBM was born.

The Positive Impact of Volunteering at Minds Beyond Measure:

We are aligned with the goals of the partnership between Service in Schools, New York and the NYC Department of Education, whichstrives to expand the number of NYC students engaged in transformative service-learning and community service experiences that enable students to use their voices, skills, and critical thinking abilities to affect positive change in their communities and the world.
