LEAP is structured so that children are surrounded by strong role models — college and high school students trained by LEAP to be mentors, instructors, and counselors. Following our mentorship model, many children who participate in LEAP grow up to become counselors themselves, or even full-time program staff. Many LEAP counselors have gone on to become teachers, principals, elected officials and community leaders — maintaining their commitment to children from low income neighborhoods. LEAP is committed to finding highly motivated counselors who work hard and believe in our kids. Thus, in addition to the application, a rigorous in-person interview is required. If this sounds like you, please apply!
