About Us

Elementary-age youth gather around an outdoor bench with tall stack of heavy books, showing off the stack and examing its base.

We offer programs for students K-12th Grade. LEAPS offers summer programming at Berkshire and Enosburg Elementary Schools and Enosburg Middle/High School. Youth can be registered at any of the sites as long as they are attending that site’s school.

“There are so many opportunities that come with the ASP [After School Program]. Having ASP lets parents not have to leave work early and earn less income. The program is a fun opportunity for all, and if there was a cost there would be less money for the economy.”

Student Participant

LEAPS Afterschool Programs are held at eight locations in the Franklin Northeast Supervisory Union. The locations include Bakersfield, Berkshire, Enosburg, Montgomery, Richford, and Sheldon Elementary Schools as well as Enosburg Middle & High School and Richford Junior Senior High.

“I believe that the afterschool program is important. Sometimes kids just need to do something fun after school so they can forget about doing homework and do something you like for a little while.”
