LEAP LogoWhat is LEAP?

LEAP engages undergraduates in helping kindergarten through third grade students develop the language, literacy, math and social skills necessary to succeed in school. Tutors are paired individually with a child for the duration of the academic year, and spend three hours per week working with their partner to develop these skills.

While participating in LEAP, tutors are encouraged to develop teaching and leadership skills, new perspectives on education, awareness and interest in the Rochester community, and additional insight into their own paths and values. Tutors complete extensive training throughout the year to help facilitate these goals.
