Minddrive uses real-world issues of our times to teach urban students critical thinking, creativity, entrepreneurship and how to improve their future by expanding their vision for themselves.

We are an out-of-school educational program that operates from 9:00 until 1:00 on Saturdays during the school year.

Additionally, we offer evening classes in more specialized areas such as welding, CAD, video editing, and innovative design.

Our classes are free to our students. We select our students through an application process. To receive an application, please email Emily Wheeler at emily@minddrive.org. Once our program is full, we will create a waitlist for when a student’s ability to participate changes and an opportunity opens up.

Our Mission Statement

To inspire students to learn through mentoring and project-based learning, to expand their vision of the future, and for them to be a positive influence on the community.
