The L.E.A.P. Program is building villages.

OUR GOAL is to connect schools, parents, police officers and communities for the shared goal of Positive Youth Development. We creatively use community caretakers to build successful children.

WE BELIEVE compassion creates connection and this connection promotes success in the four L.E.A.P. areas: happiness, health, safety and resilience.
We believe that when we build relationships, we build bridges between the police and the community.

WE TEACH how cognition and emotions drive risky behaviors among youth, and ways we can establish protective factors. Our curriculum model is rooted in social/emotional learning and provides a variety of programs and opportunities for students to connect with community caretakers (police, school administration, guidance counselors, coaches and more).

WE HELP police officers develop a mindfully compassionate approach to working with children. When we know how to protect our youth physically, mentally and emotionally, we build positive and productive members of our communities (thus reducing future police involvement)!
