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.
