Learning, Enrichment and Partnerships (LEAP) is an innovative method of helping youth with disabilities ages 13-22 develop vocational skills and aspirations as they prepare to transition out of high school. Through partnerships with regional employers and nonprofit organizations, LEAP prepares young people with disabilities and their families for a fulfilling and enriching life after high school by discovering what role they can play in their community, developing skills to transition into the workplace, establishing vocational and social networks, and providing knowledge about pertinent resources and opportunities.
Participants explore career opportunities, learn about real-world jobs, create a resume, practice mock interviews, gain experience as volunteers, and establish relationships with peers and potential employers. There are also recreation activities so that participants have time to socialize and have fun as a group. LEAP is offered in Berks County and the Lehigh Valley during the school year and as a summer program.
Waiver eligible through the Office of Developmental Programs; FSS (Lehigh Valley); ESY.
