LEAP started in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. Driven by a group of university students that had experienced their first year, many of whom did not have access to enough resources nor guidance entering post-secondary.
As an organization run entirely by students, we want to use our experience to be mentors - especially in this time where their fears may be even greater with so much uncertainty and change. We hope to create an impact on these students' professional and academic development, so they can find their footing with ease throughout this transition.
Effective starting April 1st, 2021, LEAP Canada is incorporated under the canada not-for-profit corporations act (#1284059-6).
Through LEAP, students can learn more about their post-secondary institution of interest through student life, academics, extra-curriculars, soft skills, and more.
We empower students to find their own #personalbrand and be confident heading into their first year of post-secondary life.
We assist students in the process of applying, choosing the right post-secondary institute through our resource portals, mentorship program and networking opportunities.
We prepare students for an unforgettable and unique post-secondary experience no matter where they are headed.
A message from the CEO
"I don't know how I'll manage my time in university..."
"How do I get involved, and stand out from the crowd, especially when everything is virtual?"
With COVID-19 affecting campus closures around the world, these questions are only harder to answer. Yet, they’re exactly what planted the seeds for LEAP. We hope our stories will empower you to find your own personal brand and propel you to achieve successes greater than ours.
From the second you accept your post-secondary offer to the moment you step
onto campus, in-person or virtually, LEAP is here for you. Whether you want to set yourself up for success through our diverse speaker panels or get insider dorm hacks from a mentor, I’m confident that you will feel excited and prepared - for your most unforgettable post-secondary experience, ever.
- Maggie Chen, Chief Executive Officer
