What is LEAP? Does the name stand for anything?

LEAP is a prison education program for women who will be released within 12-18 months. LEAP is a new lease on life – a way to help women who have been imprisoned to take a “leap” into a new, productive, social, happy life, outside of prison.

LEAP originally stood for Ladies Empowerment and Action Program. Today, LEAP simply stands for the leap our graduates take by committing to successfully complete our program. Learn more about the LEAP program.
