LEAP Week 2021, July 18th - 24th

WHAT IS LEAP WEEK?

July 18-24 2021  

High School & College Students aged 15-27+

LEAP Week is an in-person, week-long life skills development program which equips students with the knowledge, life skills, and confidence to achieve higher personal, academic, and professional goals!

LEAP Week’s curriculum helps youth become transformative leaders and is not taught in most high schools and colleges but proven to develop the essential skills needed to achieve success. 

This summer the 6-day LEAP Week program will bring incredible guest speakers and lectures to motivate participants and prepare them for success in college and their career.

At this time, we are hopeful LEAP Week will be held on campus at UCLA in July. If we are unable to do so, LEAP Week will be held virtually again in 2021.

I feel so much more prepared for landing a great summer internship!” -Monica London, Age 19, UCSD

PARENTS

"The LEAP experience is truly amazing! Both of my children have attended LEAP, and it gave my kids the skills they needed to formulate their vision, achieve their goals, and to become successful young adults." -Dr. Laura Kelly with LEAP Alumni children Kaitlin (UC Berkeley Grad working at Genentech) and Connor (EMT on track to become a firefighter) 

An amazing experience for our daughter who traveled there from New Hamshire (summer 2017). The event was also live streamed and Mom & Dad were glued to it all week. Can't thank Dr. Bill enough and the incredible LEAP staff for all they do. Hoping to have our other daughter attend in the years ahead as well. -Daniel Nolan, LEAP graduate parent
