Because of LEAP »

LEAP means a lot to me. It's like I have another family to help me. I can now take a stand for myself and achieve things I never could before. "

—Tawaka, age 13

“Because of LEAP, I am learning more things and I am learning how to read. Every day when I go home I tell my mom that I have fun.”

Jaylin, age 7

“Because of LEAP, I am a stronger person. LEAP taught me not to get attitudes and fights in school and at LEAP. Most of all LEAP taught me how to work together with other people. ”

Brandi, age 12

“LEAP is like family to our kids… My kids have done, seen things and gone places that I would not have been able to provide… I used to say I’m a single parent, but I’m not a single parent. LEAP shares parenting with me. ”

LEAP Parent

“Because of LEAP, I am a good person and I respect myself as a real student. ”

Desiree, Leader-in-Training

“Because of LEAP, I am more disciplined because I must fulfill the responsibilities of being a LEAP counselor and a student. The kids in my group remind me what is silly and fun about life, which is helpful in contrast to the seriousness of student life and academics. Because of LEAP, I am aware of what is important and valuable to me and how to achieve these things. ”

Jacques, Senior Counselor
