What the LEAP Foundation is all aboutThe LEAP Foundation motto pretty much says it all. They are about training students in strong leadership skills, helping them to excel in excellence within their chosen profession and individual life, and accelerating the potential of each individual.
Leadership. Excellence. Accelerating Potential.LEAP is a non-profit organization that prioritizes the student, no matter what stage of life they are in. They even cater to recent graduates who may need direction toward the next steps after college.
Leadership Program at UCLALEAP accomplishes its three main goals through a fun and interactive week-long Leadership Program hosted at UCLA. This year, both the High School (grades 9–12) and Young Adult (18-24 year olds) Programs will be held July 27 to August 2 with both programs running at the same time. During this week, leaders in their field of expertise teach students the keys to success needed to leap ahead, whether that's personally or professionally. The priorities taught deal specifically with goal-setting, proper business practices, communication in an effective manner, and the benefits of having a strong mentor figure. Not only are popular and successful motivational speakers brought in to share with the students, but the programs are fun and interactive. Some past speakers include James Malinchak, Andy Thibodeau, and Jonathan Sprinkles. Check out this great video from the LEAP website: http://youtu.be/Skr5o12gM4c
