LEAP provides academic and enrichment opportunities afterschool free of charge to students at Riverbend and Glacier Valley elementary schools in Juneau, AK. On a typical afternoon, participating students first receive a snack and an opportunity for recreation. Then they are split into groups in which they receive literacy instruction as well as enrichment activities. Space is limited so preference is given to students identified with academic need.

Julie Leary is the Director of the program and has been a teacher in the Juneau School District for over 20 years.
