Program 1

Project Forward Leap's (PFL) services consist of annual five week summer residential institutes on college campuses, supplemented by local school year Saturday Tutoring and Enrichment programs (STEP). In addition to these core components, what differentiates PFL from other education intervention programs is that PFL (1) reaches out to children in the fifth grade before they begin a downward spiral; (2) provides services to students throughout each year of participation until they graduate from high school; (3) prioritizes the teaching of science, technology, engineering, and math at more advanced academic levels than inner city public schools; (4) incorporates character building strategies and interpersonal activities into programming to address the emotional and behavioral needs of students; (5) encourages students to remain in their home schools and work with participating school districts to help them raise educational standards; and (6) requires the active involvement and support of parents.
