reLEAP is a new iLEAP program that re-ignites a graduate’s connection to the hope, inspiration, and community they experienced in iLEAP. reLEAP is a tangible expression of our organizational commitment to our graduates, and our belief in the depth of relationships—to ourselves and each other—to ignite and sustain social change.
reLEAP is comprised of a series of advanced trainings in leadership and social innovation that are offered exclusively to graduates. These trainings are held both within regions (Latin America, Asia, and Africa) and also in Seattle. Groups are assembled across multi-year iLEAP cohorts and further deepen the trust and bonds between social leaders that are vital to build lasting community in service to social change.
In April 2015, we held the first reLEAP in El Salvador as a part of our the Latin America Leadership Initiative (LALI). Women graduates from around the region gathered at the Jardin de Celeste along the Ruta de las Flores to participate in a three-day training facilitated by iLEAP staff. Graduates connected around issues of power and love as well as some of the specific challenges of being women leaders working toward social change in their communities.
