LEAP YP brings together young professionals from across industries and backgrounds to empower LEAP to scale its programs and serve more NYC students who deserve access to quality arts education. We do so through:

  1. Planning creative events that raise funds for LEAP and build awareness of our programs

  2. Connecting young professionals to LEAP's programming, from bringing volunteers to LEAP's flagship events to sourcing talent for pro bono projects

  3. Developing a community of diverse professionals, including LEAP alumni, to lead the next generation of arts education nonprofits
