After School Program

Since the beginning, the core activities at SEA have been divided into three and a half beats: help with homework, a learning activity that boosts core academic skills such as reading or math, something that’s new and just plain fun, and a nutritious snack. These components provide structure for a program that is otherwise highly customized based on students’ needs and the site staff’s interests and experience.

The SEA Afterschool Program's Mission is to provide underserved middle and high school youth with an arts and literacy based after-school program which includes visual art, music, dance, film, academic support, enrichment activities and a variety of sports in a safe and caring environment.

Learning Enrichment After-School Program (leap) has serviced thousands of underprivileged, elementary and middle school students and their families since its inception in 2004. We currently support roughly 1,300 students a day in Los Angeles.

Every day, from the close of the school day until 6:00PM, the leap staff, contractors and volunteers delivers safe, highly engaging environments. We provide nutritious meals or snacks, homework support, creative enrichment classes, and academic tutoring – at no cost to parents.

Our mission is to develop the critical thinking skills of students from under served communities by delivering the most engaging experience after-school.

Ultimately we want students to make healthy lifestyle decisions. We have found that environments, where learning is collaborative, active and supports mastery, produce individuals who are more confident, disciplined and motivated to accomplish something. That first “something” will be to graduate from high school and then college or pursue a career with passion.

We believe that supporting the total person: physically, academically, and creatively builds an inspired student who dreams more, reaches higher and goes on to be a healthy, productive citizen. She knows that beauty comes in countless packages. He knows that value is not measured by money. We believe they will break the mold of hopelessness and lead their generation with boldness, creativity and compassion.
