Welcome to the LEAP Program

Learner Empowerment through Agency Partnerships (LEAP) is a community-based non-paid training internship program for young adults (18-22) with disabilities who want to learn and use skills in real life situations. The purpose of the program is to provide an opportunity for individuals with disabilities to learn job and life skills necessary to obtain self-sufficiency and enhance their potential and confidence.

Brevard's LEAP program was founded in 1999 by Kathy Lowe of Brevard Public Schools in Viera Florida. The first LEAP site was at the West Melbourne Wal-Mart. The LEAP program has grown every year since and now employs many trainers at training sites across Brevard county. Our students are involved in all manner of businesses from retail, to healthcare, county government and education.
