ABOUT LEAP YEAR

Based in Atlanta, GA, 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 Leap Year’s yearlong full-time program, their “Fellows” spend 20 hours per week focused on college readiness preparation, while the other 20 hours per week Fellows serve as part-time second-grade reading coaches at local elementary schools. Their mission is to prepare young, talented students to reach their academic and leadership potential by attending college and breaking the cycle of poverty. Visit: www.theleapyear.org
