If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the women and men to gather wood,

divide the work, and give orders. 

 

Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.

"The Tiniest Dot"

Less than 1% of graduates from an urban public high school this decade continued their postsecondary education at amazing out-of-state colleges and universities.  Yet, America's Best Colleges await applications from Emerging Leaders who come from low-income communities and are perhaps the first generation in their families to go to college.  

The MIMS Institute Fellows Inc targets students who may be ready at this time to Explore, Dream Big, and Make a Difference--and who might be willing to pursue growth opportunities well outside their comfort zone.  We believe that community support for their journeys through simple Acts of Kindness can make a HUGE difference in their preparation for and persistence at Tier One Universities and other amazing colleges and universities.
