We are a nonprofit educational organization doing anti-racism work through curriculum reform and engaging ALL communities. Our mission is: To inspire the Young Minds Of Our Future. We act this out in four primary ways:
Classroom Service: Our Teacher’s Forum subscription service prepares teacher candidates to close testing gaps, reduce suspensions and create a greater love of classroom education for ALL youth; learn more
Media: HD video personal narratives that enhance our articles and preserve our stories. Called the 'Voices That Guide Us,' in 2022, we partnered with the city of the Minnesota Historical Society to digitize 65 more of our old 'tapes' for preservation. Here is one segment that was preserved.
Our Street Team International program went global, collaborating with the American Swedish Institute. It creates a cross-racial and cross-generational safe place to learn about our differences and similarities as human beings. In 2022, we received funding from the Minnesota Humanities Center. Please view our work.
Our Street Team Civics program was launched this summer to engage youth globally and share their feelings about the midterm election and the democratic process.
Journal of The Registry is our annual 'academic white paper.' It was launched in 2020 summer as a catalyst for social change through the advocacy of inclusive justice. The primary goal is to offer an open source for voices, visions and thoughts that are often buried in the noise of doing the work at all levels of society.
Our Frances McHie Scholarship is in its third year. This opportunity seeks to award small financial grants to individual students at the University of Minnesota School of Nursing who are interested in becoming nurses or seeking to advance their nursing education. African American nursing students, non-white students, and first-generation college students are strongly encouraged to apply.
