This summer, two Young Playwrights students had the fantastic opportunity to travel to California to participate in The LEAP Foundation conferences.
The LEAP Foundation, Inc. (“LEAP”) was formed in 2008 as a California not-for-profit corporation. LEAPsponsors six-day conferences designed to teach leadership skills to participating students, aged 15 to 24, in small groups under the guidance of the conference faculty and individual coaches.
LEAP encourages students to take great strides toward achieving their dreams and to “LEAP” ahead in life – academically, professionally and personally – in ways they may not have even been able to foresee.
Young Playwrights’ students are able to go thanks to the Matt Stuski Scholarship, which was started in memory of Board Member Nancy Stuski’s son, Matt, who was close friends with LEAP founder, Tony Granados.
