LEAP is all about changing lives and offering another opportunity. We stand for creating opportunities for change, educating, assisting and supporting women in prison and those re-entering, fostering self sufficiency, restoring dignity, increasing self-esteem and giving women hope.
Established in 2009, Ladies Empowerment and Action Program (LEAP) is a Miami based 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization. We are an innovative inside prison re-entry and post release support program. The program is designed to stimulate and empower incarcerated women to make positive life changes through a multi-disciplinary approach including entrepreneurship training, education and mentorship.
Our goal is to prepare participants (LEAPers) to start their own business or become successfully employed. By empowering these women to live transform lives, recidivism can be reduced in the female adult prison population.
