Mission Statement

LEAP for Education empowers underserved students to achieve social and economic mobility by cultivating personal, educational, and career growth.


LEAP for Education is celebrating its 20th anniversary of service to local students. LEAP has a variety of volunteer opportunities, ranging from one-time service to longer-term commitments. We believe that all supporters are vital to the organization’s mission, and engagement helps students find success and build a stronger community. In FY2021, 133 volunteers contributed more than 2,000 hours of support, the vast majority of which was student-facing -- that is, serving as career mentors, college prep success advisors, middle school enrichment facilitators, or staffing myriad career services events. LEAP's ~600 students are from Lynn, Salem and Peabody, MA, in grades 6-16; they are economically disadvantaged ( 88%), first-generation-to- college (83%), students of color (75%), and/or English learners or former English learners (32%). LEAP's Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Advocacy (DEIA) work is one of three top strategic priorities for the organization. All of LEAP's programs are offered free of charge to its students.
