LEAP is happening in July 2015 this year! Please stay tuned for updates and more information on volunteer opportunities this coming summer!

 What is LEAP?

Memorial's Leadership Education and Preparation or LEAP is a two-day event, where Level III students from across Newfoundland and Labrador have the opportunity to attend an overnight leadership conference at Memorial's St. John's Campus. LEAP is filled with fun, interactive and engaging activities that contribute to students overall  leadership capacity and prepare them for their journey into post-secondary life. Students experience first-hand life at  Memorial through attending classes pertaining to their personal interests, getting familiar with campus and being immersed in Memorial's culture during one of the most eventful times of the year.

LEAP 2015 will take place during the month of July.  We will be recruiting volunteers for the LEAP program again this year.  

LEAP offers TWO types of volunteer opportunities to students:

1. LSM (LEAP Student Mentor)
