Life Enrichment Award
The Life Enrichment Awards Program (LEAP) provides grants to support youth and young adults with disabilities and chronic illnesses in the Washington, D.C. area as they transition to adulthood. Grants are made through The HSC Pediatric Center’s network of community partners who are working to ensure young adults have the resources and services they need to make a successful transition to the next step in their lives.
Funds may be used for a variety of purposes, such as:
- Business clothing
- Career exploration or related courses
- Computers and equipment
- Other transition needs
If you are a young person in need of support, there are services and organizations that may be able to help.
Each year, HSC holds a reception and benefit to recognize the many young people who receive LEAP grants.
Not a partner? We welcome information on organizations that assist youth and young people with disabilities and their families. If you have something to share, please send us an email.
Many community organizations partner with us to carry out the LEAP program. Our partners make it possible for more youth and young adults with disabilities to transition to their next step, whether it is more school, training or a job.
