MindLeaps creates educational paths for the most vulnerable children in the world through a creative arts program that is built on data-driven metrics.
Join the NYC Teaching Team
MindLeaps seeks male-identifying instructors in NYC with backgrounds in education, dance, movement or sports. The instructors should have experience working with children. One paid position is available immediately. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Who We Are
MindLeaps is a not-for-profit organization staffed by dance instructors, educators, social workers, counselors and administrators, all dedicated to building a bridge to education and positive livelihoods through dance.
Why We Do It
We believe that changing mindsets and opening the door to education and employment can change the future for youths who might otherwise be abandoned to hopelessness or radicalization.
