CREATING A
NEW HAVEN
FOR OUR CHILDREN

Leadership
Education &
Athletics in
Partnership

 

We teach children how to learn and young adults how to lead.

Leadership, Education and Athletics in Partnership, Inc. (LEAP) was founded in 1992 by educators, students, and community activists to address the historic disinvestment in young people of color in our city. In our two community centers and seven neighborhood-based sites, we provide children with a welcoming place to learn, explore and grow, while offering teens and young adults a platform to find their voice and become leaders and role models. College and high school student counselors teach younger students in literacy, the arts, and athletics.
