Vision
LEAP BRIDGES THE GAP

HOW DO WE support KIDS in Achieving success?

Language Empowers All People

LEAP was born to bridge the language gap and empower children, teens and young adults from under-resourced Black and brown communities with an opportunity to work on the communication skill sets so essential to reaching their personal academic and social goals.

After first working with children whose families lived in Chicago Housing Authority residences, noted speech language pathologist Dr. Katie Gottfred, Ph.D., and her colleague, Dr. John Lybolt, Ph.D., subsequently decided to dramatically expand LEAP’s impact by training numerous teachers, tutors, and other educators on how to engage students in carefully structured, research-based lessons and activities that would build their critical oral and written language skills.

LEAP continues to carry out its mission in low-resource classrooms across Chicago

More than 75% of LEAP’s revenue comes from the generous support of local foundations, corporations, and individuals who realize that their investment will yield life-changing benefits for students touched by LEAP’s programming.
