LEAP is proud to announce the launch of its “LEAP Into Summer” program which offers genuinely functional and experiential activities. The program will continue the job-site work experiences and feature a weekly theme and outing. Participants will learn to effectively use the Marta bus and train system to access field trip locations; they’ll be given an “allowance” and be taught to live within a budget; and they’ll be shown how to intelligently plan menus, shop for food, and prepare meals. Scheduled outings include a Braves game, the Georgia Aquarium, Zoo Atlanta, and Brookwood Grill.
There will be two three-week sessions open to rising juniors and seniors as well as recent graduates. The first session will run from June 9th through June 27th, and the second will follow from July 7th through July 25th. Sessions will meet from 9:00 to 1:00 on Monday through Friday. Individuals may choose to participate in one session or both; materials and outings will differ in each three week period.
Tuition for each three-week session is $1,800.
