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 25,000 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.
