Senior Counselors

LEAP Senior Counselors must be college or graduate students in good academic standing at a 2- or 4-year college or university. Senior Counselors (with their Junior Counselors) lead groups of children as their teacher, mentor and a positive role model while they develop academically and socially. LEAP counselors are at the center of the LEAP experience for their children, and they must demonstrate the highest level of commitment.
