Skill Development and Cultural Exchanges

MindLeaps youth trainers in Mauritania lead the dance classes, collect data on their students' skill development through Tracker, and conduct home and school visits.

Over the last several months, our trainers have been teaching classes and collecting data through Tracker, a kinesthetic-based monitoring and evaluation system. 92 children are regularly taking dance classes from these trainers.  The trainers enter the skill of every student during every class in Tracker. Over time, they are able to determine skill improvements and areas where they should focus. Below you can see data analytics produced through Tracker in April 2021 for one of these groups of students.

In addition to teaching dance class, one of the activities of MindLeaps youth dance trainers is to conduct home visits. These home visits enable us to check on how our students are progressing as well as ensure that our youth are safe and maintaining their focus on education. The home visits also reach the parents to help them understand the benefits to their kids of participating in MindLeaps' program and going to school; otherwise many parents of girls may feel that it is more important to have their kids stay at home.

 As part of a project funded by the U.S. Embassy in Nouakchott, the youth enrolled in MindLeaps' Virtual Academy in Mauritania have participated in 10 cultural exchange sessions with youth from the U.S. High schools and dance programs participated from all over the U.S., including from Georgia, Indiana, Minnesota, Arizona, Texas, Kansas, Connecticut, North Carolina, and Maryland. Students from both countries presented about their cultures, families, and shared their hobbies, visual art, poetry, and dance.
