I joined Girls' LEAP Self-Defense my freshman year of college because I needed to join a service organization for a class, and LEAP's mission statement of empowering local girls seemed perfect for me. Over the past 3 years I've spent with LEAP, I have seen their unwavering commitment to this goal and the ways in which they are constantly making improvements to better meet it. I've been deeply moved by the changes I've seen in the youth I've worked with in programs. Not only is LEAP doing wonderful work in the community, it is also a fantastic organization to be a part of. They are incredibly supportive of every staff member, from teens, to college students, to adult staff. I believe that Girls' LEAP is an example of a service organization at its best, and yet is is still growing! I am excited to keep being a part of that growth.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the programs I've taught, trainings I've led, meetings I've been a part of--everything LEAP does is intentional and designed to have a positive impact.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

work to empower 2,857 girls all at once. Wouldn't that be something?

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
