The Murals of the Mind Project (M.O.M.) is a nonprofit, 501c3 organization began in 2007 providing free alternative education programs to youth ages 10 to 17. For more than ten years M.O.M. has served over 3000 youth in the Philadelphia and Camden. But wait, there’s more good news! Since 2014:

  • » 20% of our kids have participated in additional programs
  • » 75% of teens who participated in the college and career readiness workshop secure summer jobs, internships, or volunteer
  • » 10% of participants return as mentors, guest speakers and junior facilitators

...If M.O.M. won’t who will?

M.O.M.’s success is largely due to community partnerships and committed volunteers; individual support and corporate sponsorship. Our commitment to youth success is unwavering. Here, we help youth gets ready for life!
