United States of America

Since 2014, MindLeaps has served over 10,000 children across the globe. In 2022, MindLeaps is expanding into our seventh country, the United States of America.

MindLeaps’ first-ever New York City program launched on January 11, 2022. This pilot project is organized in partnership with the community-centered non-profit Children of Promise located in Brooklyn, New York.

Children of Promise is the first and only after school program and summer day camp in NYC specifically designed to meet the needs, interests, and concerns of children whose parents or guardians are incarcerated.

Through the MindLeaps Dance & Data program at Children of Promise, four MindLeaps dance teachers are currently working with 20 children, ages 8 & 9, twice per week, for 1.5 hours each class, over the course of six months. The program is designed to support 7 specific social-emotional and cognitive skills, thereby increasing the children’s emotional resilience and positive life decision-making.


As we continue to run pilot programs in NYC, MindLeaps is currently seeking male-identifying instructors in NYC with backgrounds in education, dance, movement or sports. The instructors should have experience working with children. These are paid positions with paid on-the-job training. One position is available immediately.

BIPOC instructors are strongly encouraged to apply.

The instructors will work on a team of certified MindLeaps trainers with one or more cohorts of children and youth from under-resourced communities in New York City. 

For the immediate position opening, the working schedule is Tuesdays and Thursdays 3:30pm to 7pm, in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn.
