we believe

in the transformational power of the arts. We started as a grassroots movement teaching the arts in just four schools. Today, our teaching artists serve 15,000 kids across all five boroughs of New York City.


LEAP provides educational arts programs to promote access and equity for NYC students underserved in the arts.

“With so many cases of arts education graduates becoming impactful entrepreneurs, arts education is essential for powering creative-minded problem solvers and creating business leaders of tomorrow.”

- Inc. Magazine, 2017


Over 70% of business leaders say that creative thinking is the top skill they look for when hiring. But the arts aren't always prioritized in schools. 


Your generous support today is more important than ever. Please consider making a donation to help us continue to bring transformational creative experiences to deserving schoolchildren in NYC.
