What is LEAP?
LEAP, meaning Leadership for Environmental Action Program, is a program that connects SAVE with other high schools around the region. This program has connected student leaders who are looking to improve their school’s environmental efforts throughout the south-eastern Pennsylvanian region in a day of discussion, education and fun.
Through LEAP, SAVE hopes to create strong ties with other schools, creating a coalition of schools working together to make a plan of action for more effective environmental programs.
These schools gather annually at SAVE’s SEEC campus to discuss ideas on how to improve their school and community, learning what programs are effective, and which are ineffective. SAVE also gives tours of our student-made energy efficient SAVE house as an example. Students also discuss obstacles within their schools and how to overcome them. They learn from each other what ideas work, and which do not.
