Engaging Creative Minds
Powering On Imaginations

ECM is a nationally recognized award-winning South Carolina nonprofit committed to helping school-day educators and out-of-school-time programs succeed by leveraging the arts, cultural organizations, and STEM professionals working in partnerships with teachers, principals, and superintendents during the school day, summer, and after school.


Our evidence-based K-12 system is directly aligned with the new ARP education recovery funds and increases attendance, engagement, and school morale.

Engaging Creative Minds helps schools and districts by providing in-school, summer, and afterschool enrichment support in the following ways:

1. Help schools and districts design hands-on experiential enrichment activities for summer and afterschool learning in the areas of STEAM and literacy

2. Help connect and leverage resources in communities through partnership for summer and afterschool programs that are more comprehensive, engaging, and robust through the Infusion of the arts (STEAM), entrepreneurship, and financial literacy
3. Help manage, recruit, prepare, and train staff and faculty to offer high quality/high attendance summer, in-school, and afterschool enrichment programs
4. Help schools leverage the integration of the arts and business via community artists and experts to strengthen the curriculum and personalize instruction in key academic areas needing improved engagement during the school day
