we believe

in the power of art.


Founded in 1977, LEAP started as a grassroots movement teaching the arts in just four schools. Today, our teaching artists serve 20,000 kids in 140 schools across all five boroughs of New York City. We ensure youth are not only at the table, but leading the conversation so they can be heard and seen as innovative problem-solvers preparing to lead in a thriving creative economy. 

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