Community Mindset – Because Every Child Deserves a Chance!
Every parent wants their son or daughter to feel passionate about what they do, to pursue interests that fuel happiness and provide a sense of accomplishment. Community Mindset strives to ignite young people to develop and unleash the power of their curiosity and creativity. We inspire them to live lives filled with meaning, passion, purpose, hope, and a thirst for knowledge through funding innovative educational programs.
As part of our Mentoring program our mission is to fuel the quantity and quality of mentoring relationships for America’s young people and to close the mentoring gap. To hopefully put them on the correct path to success.
As part of our Assistance program our mission is to provide goods and services to children in Northeast and Central Pennsylvania whose parents may be experiencing financial hardship but may not meet the criteria for government assistance. There are families among us who barely have enough food to feed their families, much less purchase warm jackets to protect their children from winter winds or provide them with other comforts that we tend to take for granted. On a monthly basis, our Board Members review requests from at-risk families and then negotiate with members of the business community to purchase whatever is needed to ensure the well-being of every child in need. By organizing fundraisers throughout the year, we are able to ensure that no child suffers needlessly.
As part of our Small Business Incubator Program, we will be providing loans and grants for facilities in which a number of new businesses operate under one roof with affordable rents, sharing services and equipment and having equal access to a wide range of professional, technical, and financial programs. We will also be offering offices and classrooms in which new startups can run their companies from.
