Defying Statistics One Success at a Time

Learn and Earn to Achieve Potential (LEAP), a special initiative with the Annie E Casey Foundation, provides an immersion program for young people ages 14-26 who are in foster care, have been involved in the justice system or are homeless to help them overcome significant barriers and achieve their educational and employment goals.

It is truly an all-hands-on deck effort, and the Annie E. Casey Foundation is so grateful for partners like Jobs for Michigan's Graduates who are working alongside us in Benton Harbor, Flint and Detroit to identify and adapt effective strategies to build brighter futures for
these young people.
