About Us

Project Forward Leap is committed to closing the gaps of academic achievement and developmental opportunities between disadvantaged children, and their advantaged peers. PFL’s services consist of annual five week summer residential institutes on college campuses, supplemented by local school year Saturday enrichment programs. In addition to these core components, what differentiates PFL from other education intervention programs is that PFL (1) reaches out to children in the fifth grade before they begin a downward spiral; (2) provides services to them throughout each year of participation until they graduate from high school; (3) prioritizes the teaching of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) presented earlier and at more advanced academic levels than inner city public schools; (4) encourages students to remain in their home schools, but works with participating school districts to help them raise educational standards; and (5) requires the active involvement and support of parents.
