LEAP will not be offered in summer 2020. We hope to develop programming for the Fall/Winter. Check back for details.
LEAP 2.0 is a 4-week comprehensive employment preparation program for youth with disabilities, ages 16-21, who attend school and are eager to work and earn a paycheck. It combines workplace and independent living skills instruction with real work experience to provide participants with the skills they need to transition more successfully into adulthood.
Each week, participants complete 12 hours of paid work experience in the community and 4 hours of interactive curriculum at one of Easterseals offices, receiving expert guidance from local business partners and Easterseals staff. On Thursdays, participants complete a service learning project at Camp Lily in the morning and then enjoy the recreational activities taking place at camp in the afternoon (e.g. swimming, arts & crafts, special events).
