Description Interest
LEAP’s mission is to develop the strengths and talents of young leaders who create and implement year-round, community-based programs designed to achieve positive academic and social outcomes for children living in high poverty urban neighborhoods.

In 1992, LEAP, Inc. was established to provide social and academic enrichment and leadership opportunities for at-risk children and youth in New Haven’s high-poverty/low-income neighborhoods. Over the years, LEAP has served many children through our out-of-school-time programs, and prepared young adults to become leaders in their communities. Currently, the organization serves 250-300 children and youth from low-income neighborhoods within the City of New Haven at two community-based sites, Farnam Courts and Church Street South; and one school-based site, Wexler –Grant Community School. LEAP also runs enrichment programming for children at the Roslyn Milstein Meyer LEAP Community Center.

The loss of wealth could impact the next generation and beyond, especially in communities of color, warns LISC’s Denise Scott. “Just as COVID-19 is having a disproportionate impact on the health of Black and Brown families, so too is it exacerbating our racial wealth gap, which already saps so much from our national potential.”

Unlocking Corporate Treasuries for Racial Equity: A Podcast with LISC's George Ashton

George Ashton III, who oversees LISC's Strategic Investments department, joined a recent episode of the podcast Money + Meaning to discuss LISC's Black Economic Development Fund. The conversation delved into the growth of CDFIs and their role in economic development and how more corporations can direct their capital towards systems change that promotes racial equity.
