The Project

The Legal Educational Advocacy Project (LEAP) will improve the educational achievement of Fulton County’s court-involved youth. First, LEAP will represent children in educational proceedings and form relationships with other stakeholders in the child law community; second, LEAP will file motions to ensure educational stability for children in foster care; third, LEAP will create a training program for Atlanta attorneys to take LEAP cases on a pro bono basis.
