Thank You to our Co-Founders

After 38 years, Co-Founders Ila Lane Gross and Alice Krieger have stepped down from their posts as Executive DirectorS of LeAp, passing the torch of leadership on to LeAp’s new Executive Director Richard Souto. They will continue to work with LeAp as program consultants.
Over the years, Ila and Alice grew LeAp from a small nonprofit working in four schools in 1977 to today’s nationally recognized arts education nonprofit that has served over two million NYC public school students 

citywide. Their vision and leadership has resulted in diverse and rich arts-based academic programs that continue to touch the lives of students, teacher and parents each year.
