About: LEAP empowers Latino and other children in Durham to achieve academic success by providing a high-quality preschool and on-going support through middle school. LEAP also develops training for English as a Second Language (ESL) tutors to help school-aged children develop their literacy skills.
2016-17 DGIN funding enabled a LEAP mentor to spend five hours per week designing lessons and coaching teachers. LEAP also provided teachers with “job-embedded” support from a coach who knows their classroom and can work with them over time.
