Mission Statement

LEAP's mission:

LEAP uses diverse partnerships, leadership tools and sustainable, student designed projects to transform communities to build collaborative, confident leaders with transferable skills to succeed in and impact a multicultural workforce.

Description

LEAP, Leaders Educated, Accountable, Prepared, is a paradigm shift that exists to reform the current system of handouts between affluent and non affluent communities, to a system of diverse partnerships that empower every individual to see him/herself as a part of the solutions to today's issues, regardless of circumstance.

IT'S TIME to LEAP BEYOND DIVERSITY

We're more than just numbers

We're diverse partnerships in action

We'reculturally competent, entrepreneurial leaders of tomorrow

LEAP goes beyond diversity to develop sustainable partnerships in which students from any venue work together, as equals, to capitalize on efforts in the following areas:

  • Multicultural Education
  • Self Reflection
  • Leadership
  • Service Learning
  • Global Awareness

Ingredients:

YOU+DIVERSE PARTNER+GLOBAL PARTNER = LEAP PARTNERSHIP

LEAP+PROBLEM+SCALED SOLUTION = LEAP IN ACTION

The LEAP Secret:

  • The RAPs build the partnership
  • Diverse students in the partnership are trained with tools for success
  • The partnership collaborates to build the project
  • The project scales the globe

Don't stop there, do it again, and again, and again.

LEAP's cycle of leadership empowers and coaches students to co-lead and eventually lead their LEAP. Each program is then encouraged to scale in order to improve impact.

The Result:

Transformed communities comprised of collaborative, confident leaders with transferable skills to repeatedly succeed in and impact a multicultural workforce.

LEAP needs you to scale the world.

"Every stage of LEAP is designed to test my ability to connect with diverse partners, conquer my fears, believe in myself, and make a difference to my world." Holly Gordon, Darien High School
