Mind 2 Mind is a free youth program to those who live in the East Hillside and Endion neighborhoods of Duluth, Minnesota. Mind 2 Mind provides quality youth development opportunities, focusing on areas of academic achievement, social and life skill development, health and wellness, and advocacy for the youth and their families.
Paid staff and college volunteers provide the children with positive role models as well as assisting them with their homework. We incorporate the arts, nature,and the importance of contributing back to the community through our structured educational programming. Diversity is celebrated in an environment that promotes positive growth for each child. Our youth programs have been very successful and have provided approximately 60 children per year with adventures they most likely would not have been able to participate in otherwise.
Our Mission is to work with East Hillside/ Endion residents and organizations to make their neighborhood a good place to live. We do this by supporting academic achievement and social development of diverse low-income neighborhood youth.
Our Goals are to have a safe environment for supporting youth by providing positive role models as instructors and staff on a daily basis through mentoring, tutoring, and enrichment activities, and maintaining parental and East Hillside community involvement in the program.
