Comprehensive Afterschool Programming for Kids in New Haven

Back to projects

Project Details

Since 1992, Leadership, Education and Athletics in Partnership, Inc. (LEAP) has served at-risk, minority children and teens in five target neighborhoods in the city of New Haven by providing a year-round afterschool and summer programs run, in part, by trained local teen leaders via a multi-tiered mentoring program. As the largest employer of youth (ages 16+) in the city, LEAP is adapting to the COVID crisis by taking their existing model virtual and implementing a hybrid in-person/virtual program that can serve both schoolchildren and teens in the community. With this grant, LEAP aims to fully fund their Fall 2020 programming efforts for a free, comprehensive afterschool program providing academic and socio-emotional support, as well as employment opportunities through a hybrid in-person and virtual model.

This grant is made pursuant to 4-CT’s commitment to funding projects that address systemic injustices and promote greater racial equality.
