How We Create Change

Our Mission

LEAP’s mission is to achieve full participation and equality for Asian and Pacific Islanders through leadership, empowerment and policy.

LEAP works to meet its mission by: Developing people, because leaders are made, not born; Informing society, because leaders know the issues; and Empowering communities, because leaders are grounded in strong, vibrant communities.

Our Impact

How we’ve been making a difference by the numbers.

LEAP guided me through a big trajectory in my personal and professional life. This meant that I had to work through a lot of my insecurities and anxieties, but it is so thrilling to feel positive about my contributions and strengths and not feel sheepish about it.
