Who We Are
MindLeaps is a not-for-profit organization staffed by dance instructors, educators, social workers, researchers, and entrepreneurs all dedicated to building a bridge to education and positive livelihoods for highly vulnerable children and youth.
What We Do
We engage kids in fun yet rigorous dance classes that are part of a carefully crafted curriculum to develop the key cognitive and social-emotional skills vital to success in school and work. We also address youth unemployment through targeted entrepreneurship courses in the MindLeaps Virtual Academy.
Why We Do It
Children and youth make up 42% of the world’s population and many of these children are severely vulnerable due to poverty, discrimination, conflict, or extremism, with little to no chance of attending or succeeding in school or the job market. Changing mindsets through creativity and discipline opens the door to education and employment.
How We Know It Works
We monitor and evaluate progress with Tracker, our software program specifically designed to measure the development of critical learning skills.
