Before me is the choice between right and wrong.
If I choose to do the right thing, then I'll be STRONG.
If I choose to do the wrong thing, the consequence shall STING!
So let me do the good and see the POWER it shall bring!


Mentors of Minorities in Education, Inc., M.O.M.I.E's Total Learning Cis-tem, is a DC-based nonprofit organization dedicated to “nurturing the genius” of our children by creating a transformative educational experience.  Our model uniquely integrates creative and culturally-relevant out-of-school time programs, opportunities for parent and community engagement, and the sharing of educational tools and resources for the community.


M.O.M.I.E’s purpose is to transform education for at-risk children of color through an educational model that uses social justice and cultural education as the foundation for improving academic outcomes for our children. M.O.M.I.E's dynamic, humanities and culture-based learning programs directly respond to the tremendous need for nontraditional learning opportunities for low-income children living in Washington, DC and Maryland. M.O.M.I.E’s strategic focus on the early childhood and school-age years reinforce our learning philosophy, which is grounded in the belief that children develop at a tremendous rate during their first years of life, and that providing humanities and culture-based education, opportunities, and services during the preschool and elementary years fosters health, positive growth, and long-term self-sufficiency. 




M.O.M.I.E's vision is to cultivate our children to become future leaders and agents of social change by broadening their social consciousness and awareness, and developing critical competencies that enable them to succeed in school, college, and beyond. We seek to tap into and unleash the "genius" that lies in our children, and implement an educational model that can be replicated locally, nationally, and globally.
