Over the last six weeks, we have taken you through the

NJ LEEP journey, from high school freshmen to college graduates. The story we're telling last is about families, but it truly comes first. Family is the center of it all.

Family means something different for each of us. But at the end of the day, family is constant. With our parents, students, staff, and volunteers, NJ LEEP seeks to build that constant.

Thank you for being part of the NJ LEEP family!
