How does the entrepreneurship program work?

Entrepreneurship is taught along with basic employability and life skills. Dr. Anthony Sadler, a professor in the Entrepreneurial Institute of the Andrea School of Business at Barry University, teaches for 10 weeks during the eight-month program, which is presented twice a year at Homestead Correctional Institution (women from prisons throughout Florida are transferred to Homestead in order to participate). LEAP also uses the nationally-recognized “Thinking for A Change” curriculum alongside the entrepreneurship lessons. Every graduate has researched, with the help of her mentor, and written a micro business plan. The process teaches valuable skills whether they ultimately found their own business or join an existing one.
