Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Bright Mind Enrichment is a 501(c)(3) non-profit working to bridge gaps in access to learning and aid those in great need. Through in-the-field expertise and tech innovation, we have directly helped thousands of people, and have reached millions through our outreach efforts. We are working hard to reach many more people.

We provide in-person and online enrichment activities. Our Street Care app-based platform enables groups and individuals to help homeless people directly while creating a shareable, growing repository of information about those in need, which can be used by agencies and groups to best aid hard-to-reach populations. As part of our Street Care mission, we singularly scaled a vaccination rewards app for hesitant Americans and are now developing safety and elderly-support components (as requested of us by mayors of a few large cities). Our educational outreach efforts have led to us being featured on Politico, CBS, ABC and Newsweek, and we are dedicated to reaching more people regarding wellness.

We are a wellness organization that is committed to creating and sharing user-friendly compassionately-driven programming and tech to help tackle social problems.

Bright Mind is led by in-the-field experts who support those in great need based on decades of experience and best practices in the sector. Due to the growth of tech (and its paucity in the nonprofit sector), we make it a core focus to create programming that is enhanced greatly by cutting-edge tech solutions, ensuring that they fit into our compassionate inclusive approach.

We have a 3-prong focus for all our programming, which we adapt to fit each endeavor and which is the base for all strategic efforts:
--a foundation in caring, to inspire people to want to learn, participate, and grow;
--participant-centered activities such as student-driven learning;
--inclusive facilitation and guidance from trained team members, to help participants grow and master competency areas.

We have a wheel of over 30 competencies that we created, focused on mind, values, health, and involvement, which aligns our strategies, and from which we focus on 4 key competencies in how we strategize and deliver services:
1. Critical thinking:
Providing ways to challenge and support people to think independently, critically and incisively.
2. Healthy lifestyle choices:
Looking at the critical needs and holistic wellness of the community and ensuring they are addressed in real time.
3. Empathy:
Understanding community members’ concerns by respecting diverse perspectives across all levels of the community, to offer and execute targeted solutions.
4. On-the-ground and digital volunteering:
Involving all members of the community from individuals on the ground to policy leaders, corporate bodies and other interested entities.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
