About The Org

The MasterMind Cooperative
Our Mission

The MasterMind Cooperative's MISSION
is to address the fundamental needs in transitioning people from marginalized communities into living lives where they can thrive, through their own passions and service. We work to eliminate previously maintained barriers to success in business, community, happiness, and wellness.

What We Do

Weekly Wellness Support

Each and every Sunday at noon we distribute free offerings to the community from Assembly of Love Church in Philadelphia (219 W. Tabor Rd., 19120) with support from our partnerships with Double Trellis and Sharing Excess. One of our primary focuses is recreational health, through activities that empower balance, health, and wellbeing for all. We provide a consistent flow of fresh fruits and vegetables, fully-prepared nutritious meals, personal hygiene products, and even clothing when available.

Residential Training Program

We are currently fundraising to provide space for entrepreneurs and artists to conveniently and comfortably collaborate while birthing their business or completing new projects. There will be areas dedicated to group working, open desks, a meeting room, library, and a fully stocked kitchen (with free beverages and refreshments). There will be technology center and recording studio equipment available for member use, as well as recreational space. There will also be a few single rooms, as well as dormitory-style rooms available for members to rent on a short-term basis. Very high-speed internet is essential, as the technology center will include services like Virtual Reality, online learning, and 3D printing.

Sustainability Experience Campus(es)

There will be land available in various places in the United States, and abroad, where participants can learn about sustainable agricultural business models, growing their own foods, nature-based businesses, and hosting quarterly recreational health retreats. This program is housed within the Co-Living/Co-Working service. Artists and Innovators will apply to this program, and those selected will be required to complete a virtual course before gaining access to the shared residential space.
