Working to improve educational outcomes for teens through homework help, tutoring and creative learning programs in St. Paul and Minneapolis High Schools.
It's a crazy mixed-up world out there and everybody needs good people around them to help make sense of it all. This is especially true for young people in our schools. If they're lucky, a student will have good parents and a strong teacher or two, but that's not enough...
Enter the MOI
The Mid-Continent Oceanographic Institute (formerly Rock Star Supply Co.) is a nonprofit that works with students and teachers in St. Paul high schools. We believe that anyone who cares enough about kids to give their time and talents is a Rock Star. Getting you plugged in to help students rock out on homework and develop a love of learning is what we do.
MOI got started about a year and a half ago as a group of friends who were tired of the all the negative conversation and finger-pointing around public education. We wanted to do something about it. We started contacting schools, talking to principles and teachers, figuring out what works, and seeing what we could do to help.
Think learning is important? Us too. Ever wondered what you could do to get involved? Us too. Want to make a difference in a teenager's life? Of course you do, because you're a Rock Star.
