How to Apply

The LEAP program is now accepting applications for the summer term.  The deadline to apply is May 31, 2013.

After reviewing all applications, LEAP Coordinators will then invite selected candidates for a short, in-person interview at Central Office.  Final decisions regarding the summer 2013 cohort will be sent out on June 14, 2013.


Who are we looking for?

We welcome applications from rising 10th, 11th, and 12th graders at any DC Public School.  When selecting our cohort, we are looking for students who are on time, ready to work and eager to learn. Participants will be asked to engage in a number of independent tasks, but should also be prepared to work collaboratively with DCPS staff and other associates. There are no minimum academic requirements for application.

How can I recommend a student for the LEAP Internship?

Teachers, counselors, community leaders and parents are welcome to recommend students to apply for LEAP.  Please submit your recommendation at
