The LEAP Program connects Associate and Certificate candidates to employer paid internships in growing, in-demand occupations.
The program seeks to address issues affecting student graduation rates including:
LEAP combines classroom training and paid work experience through internships to help “middle skill” students gain appropriate skills and access to better paying jobs in the knowledge economy.
Participants will be placed in relevant, paid internships, receive contextualized soft-skills training in the classroom, and receive career counseling and support during, and post-internship with the program completion culminating in job placement.
LEAP will be launched, implemented, and managed through 5 occupation-specific LEAP Project Offices.
Classes begin on a rolling basis at each of our partner locations. Each office welcomes participants from all boroughs. To participate, please contact our partners directly:
