    LEAP Conference

    The Latino/a Educational Achievement Project (LEAP)  is proud to once again bring together students from across the state to celebrate our community’s excellence and resilience. This year’s theme is “Dream Today, Lead Tomorrow”. It will be held at the Hotel Murano in Tacoma March 28-29. This year we seek to celebrate our dreams rooted in our Latinx identity. Our mission and ideas for the theme this year are motivated by our current political environment. We would like to be able to create and celebrate our resilience in education, politics, and culture. By empowering our youth to thrive despite that hatred and racism that we face in this country, they will go on to be the leaders of tomorrow.

    This conference is for students to take ownership of self-advocacy, cultural knowledge, and show their pride as well as what it means to be a leader. We would like to emphasize to our participants that they need to keep their dreams alive despite the setbacks faced in today’s society.

    View conference details, registration, and more information online. The Hotel Murano will be offering a special discounted price for those who mention they are participating in the conference. This year, the conference will only be accepting students in grades 9-19. If you have any questions, please contact leap@seamarchc.org or at (206) 965-1057.
