“At the New Jersey Law Education Empowerment Program…I hear you guys are connecting students with internships and mentors from local law firms.  I was a lawyer — you do know that.  And that was one thing I wish I had done, I never worked in a law firm before.  This is such great experience, because you’ll have some idea what you’re doing when you go to law school.”

- First Lady Michelle Obama

NJ LEEP is the 2014 Winner of the New York Life Excellence in Summer Learning Award!

What is NJ LEEP?

NJ LEEP, Inc. was founded in 2006 to empower youth from underserved neighborhoods in northern New Jersey to greater educational achievement through a three-fold focus on skills, habits, and exposure. NJ LEEP focuses upon combining law-related education programming with college access programming.

Grades 9-12:

NJ LEEP facilitates an out-of-school time College Bound Program that works with students continuously throughout all four years of high school. The College Bound Program takes place after school, on Saturdays and over the summer. Through programs such as Life Skills, Saturday Grammar and Writing Class, Constitutional Law Debates, SAT Preparation and College Application Programming, NJ LEEP students learn both the hard academic and social-emotional skills necessary to succeed at the nations top colleges and universities. 100% of program graduates have enrolled in college and 85% are currently enrolled.

College & Beyond:

100% of graduates of NJ LEEP’s College Bound Program have enrolled in college. NJ LEEP provides pre-law counseling, adjustment support, scholarships, and other support to these students.
