The employees of Mentoring Minds have a spirit to serve and share. It’s more than just part of a mission statement or policy; it’s actually part of the Mentoring Minds’ ethos. Because of a shared passion for helping others, Mentoring Minds created a program for service called MindSHARE. MindSHARE encourages the team at Mentoring Minds to be active members and volunteers in the community. Employee-nominated organizations are evaluated by the employee-based MindSHARE committee on several factors such as employee involvement and organizational reach. MindSHARE will continue this tradition of selecting and awarding funds to non-profit organizations quarterly up to $20,000 a year.
