About Us

NJ LEEP, www.njleep.org, is a four-year college access program working with 150+ students from underserved neighborhoods in the greater Newark area. We help students to perform at high academic levels by building skills through law-related and other educational programs, developing the habits necessary for college success and community leadership, and offering exposure to role models who have achieved professional success. 100% of NJ LEEP program graduates have gone on to college, including Amherst, Georgetown, Princeton, Rutgers, Wellesley, Wesleyan, and the University of Chicago. NJ LEEP has won national awards for program quality and innovation, and been recognized at the US Department of Education and The White House.
