Lawyers Encouraging Academic Performance (LEAP) is looking for local volunteer attorneys interested in its Reading Buddies program, which is set to restart this upcoming spring 2015. The attached handout provides a general overview of the program. In short, we are seeking attorneys willing to volunteer periodically at Operation Breakthrough from January 21, 2015 through April 29, 2015. The volunteers will serve with a team of other volunteers, and each team will read with children at Operation Breakthrough for one hour every other week.
LEAP is a local not-for-profit foundation seeking to improve education in Kansas City. LEAP's designated beneficiary is Operation Breakthrough, which serves underprivileged children in the greater Kansas City area. Operation Breakthrough's mission is to help impoverished (and often homeless) children develop to their fullest potential. LEAP is deeply invested with developing volunteer opportunities for attorneys at Operation Breakthrough. If you are interested in volunteering to be a Reading Buddy this spring or have any questions, please contact one of the people listed below.
