What is LEAP?
Leaders Education Assistance Project (LEAP) is an organization aimed at educating the Muslim Youth about Personal Finance in order to help them navigate the financial obstacles that occur in college.
The vision of the organization is to incorporate financial and leadership advice for the incoming, current college student, and the recent graduate.
Financial Literacy is not a one time knowledge gaining experience, it is a continuation of building the knowledge as well as applying it. The current status of our society and economy enforces the concept of borrowing to live essentially above one’s means. However, this norm does not depict a healthy economic life. At LEAP, we are aiming to help the future generation continuously learn financial education and apply it to their life and lifestyle for a financially healthier future.
