Partnerships Continue to Power STEM Careers at LEAP

LEAP is grateful for its longtime, ever-expanding partnership with the team at New England Biolabs. 


NEB's Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion STEM Committee recently contributed $5,000 to help support four LEAP post-secondary students in science, technology, math, and engineering fields. These amazing students are: 

Isabella Jeune (Engineering - North Shore Community College)

Janelle Mendoza (Nursing - Salem State University)

Oladapo “Dapson” Olofinmoyin (Nursing - North Shore Community College)

Perla Pena (Nursing - Salem State University)

Science Education 

NEB staff ran 4 classroom experiments with about 50 middle school students in Lynn and Salem.

Thank you New England Biolabs and its DE&I STEM Committee, and congratulations, students!

FBI Visit Gives LEAP Teens New Perspective

Two FBI professionals from the Boston headquarters were greeted by a wall-to-wall audience of Salem and Lynn Teen Center students, who learned about career opportunities within the Bureau. “I thought that when you went to work at the FBI, you weren’t sure if you were going to come home!,” remarked a 10th grade high school student. “But I learned there are so many interesting jobs – I just may have to work for the FBI!” That about sums it up.

College Success Program and Teen Center Students Tour Campuses

During February vacation, 24 LEAP students from Lynn and Salem toured four college campuses, Framingham State University, Brandeis University, Emmanuel College, and Bentley University. Students had the opportunity to learn about unique academic programs, extracurriculars, and student life at each campus, and even had the chance to enjoy lunch at the schools' dining halls and see some dorms.
