“I just wanted to say thank you for teaching me skills I never knew I needed. I’ve noticed a change in how I work with others, more confidence in public speaking, and far less anxiety about my future. I feel so much more prepared for landing a great summer internship!”
-Monica London, Age 19, UCSD
“The tools I learned at LEAP and the friends and mentors I met during the program have played a huge role in what I've been able to accomplish in the years since. This program is a game changer."
-Holly Ransom, Named in 100 Most Influential Australian Women
"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
