Since 2007, the New Haven County Bar Association has adopted LEAP (the Leadership, Education, Athletics in Partnership program in New Haven) to help assist children who live in high poverty neighborhoods achieve and succeed.
LEAP’s mission is to develop the strengths and talents of young leaders who implement year-round, community and school-based programming designed to achieve positive academic and social outcomes for children living in high poverty urban neighborhoods. For over twenty years, LEAP has led the movement to provide children and youth with opportunities to thrive in all areas of their lives. LEAP reaches into neighborhoods that are laden with a shortage of positive resources, and empowers the children and youth of these communities to be positive resources themselves. LEAP currently serves children in New Haven, CT.
The New Haven County Bar Association's Public Service Committee coordinates our participation in LEAP activities and volunteer placement. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the NHCBA office at (203) 562-9652 for more information.
