Girls’ LEAP (Lifetime Empowerment & Awareness Program)
is a non-profit agency which offers self-defense and empowerment programs to Boston girls aged 8-18. Girls’ LEAP provides programs throughout Greater Boston by partnering with community based organizations to reach girls in their own neighborhoods. Our programs incorporate unique self-reflective and physical self-defense activities to transform the lives of girls by teaching skills that encourage conflict resolution, violence de-escalation andhealthy boundary setting.
Girls’ LEAP programs help girls unlock their voices, and increase their self-worth and courage.
“Girls’ LEAP is a stronger way of living, walking, talking, learning about yourself, about learning how to appreciate all the things that are awesome about yourself.” -Girl, age 13
