“I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your selflessness in assuring the opportunity for our youths to enjoy the benefits of so many resources. These would have been otherwise unknown to them. Your efforts have not gone unnoticed, my family and I are most grateful to you and L.E.E.P ."
Jalen Thomas, Scholar
".L.E.E.P has always been good to me. Whether it was to celebrate and recognize my strengths as a student or to drive and encourage me to do better, one thing was constant. Love. Love from Ms. Lisa. Love from Ms. Gale. Love from my fellow students. I believe that L.E.E.P is built on loving one another, and that foundation, ultimately, made me a better person."
Alexis Buxo, Scholar

COLLEGE AND CAREER READINESS
Making a Difference One Youth at a Time
Since 2013, we have contributed to the development of middle and high school students in the greater District of Columbia area through our wide range of programs. Our College and Career Readiness program can provide successful transitions between high school and college by helping students gain the skills, knowledge, and expertise needed for their postsecondary success.
L2C integrates college and career readiness into monthly leadership sessions and mentoring program through activities, partnerships and family involvement.
L2C Scholars will use strategies to move college and career readiness into practice, including setting goals and keeping projects focused on student needs.
L2C Scholars and Parents/Guardians are able to:
Define mentoring support and describe the role it has in college and career readiness.
Describe how the Work Personalities Tool can help students evaluate career choices to match their interests and work personalities.
Identify resources that can be used to implement college and career readiness for students.
A PATH TO COLLEGE
Dropping the High School Dropout Rate
Recognizing that a college education confers many advantages, the L.E.E.P programs provide a variety of free services to low-to-moderate income, underrepresented students with the goal of increasing their interest in and readiness for college. The program began in 2013, and annually serves approximately 150 students and their families.
