Parent/Guardian Information

LEAP will be held July of 2015 this academic year. Please check the Guidance Counsellor page for the detailed letter that has been sent to all schools.

Mission of LEAP

To allow students to experience first-hand a day in the life of a Memorial student, meet with peers from around Newfoundland and Labrador who have similar interests, explore various leadership programs that are available to them at Memorial, be introduced to the support services available, get a sense of the benefits of continued involvement in the post secondary environment, and get familiar with Memorial's St. John's Campus.

Who can attend?

LEAP open to Level III students who have shown leadership ability through their high school and community involvement. Applicants must be Level III (grade 12) students, and should be enthusiastic, creative young people that intend on attending Memorial University of Newfoundland. Please be aware that only two students per school can attend LEAP due to Memorial 's limited accommodations during this time.

If your student wishes to attend this program, we please contact your school's guidance counsellor or principal for more information. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
