Leap Year

Leap Year

Grant provided by the Seed Fund theleapyear.org
Leap Year prepares first generation students to succeed in college and become leaders in their communities through a paid community service gap year program. During the program, Fellows spend 20 hours per week on college applications and readiness through ACT prep, Math/English tutoring, study habits review, and confidence building activities. During the remaining 20 hours, Fellows serve as paid part-time AmeriCorps members, providing educational talks in local schools, and using design thinking to create an independent final community service project.
