LEAP Launch 
Monday, May 9

Sites and partners met in Baltimore, Maryland April 7-8, 2016 to share their LEAP vision, ideas, and areas of focus. Members of the LEAP communities, staff from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, Corporation for National and Community Service/Social Innovation Fund, School & Main Institute, Inc., and national LEAP partner organizations dug into critical LEAP goals and key aspects of implementation to build the LEAP Learning Community, and network. 

LEAP is made possible in part through a $4.5 million grant the Foundation received in August 2015 from the Social Innovation Fund, a program of the Corporation for National and Community Service, the federal agency for volunteering and service programs. The Social Innovation Fund fosters public and private collaborations to evaluate and grow innovative community-based solutions that work.
