we believe

in the 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.

OUR MISSION

LEAP provides educational arts programs to promote access and equity for New York City students underserved in the arts. We inspire diverse school communities to love learning and build their creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking skills.

THE LEAP WAY

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.
