Apply for LEAP


LEAP has a few more slots open for its summer SHINE project to teach English in the refugee camps of Lebanon. Due to the time sensitive nature, the turnaround time will be expedited to allow for proper processing and planning before the beginning of the program on 3 July 2017.

Please note that upon acceptance, all volunteers will be required to submit a $750 non-refundable payment to secure their position with SHINE no later than oneweek after their acceptance.  This will cover your housing, as well as overall program operational costs (Coordinator stipends, printing, school supplies, tshirts, school trip entrance fees & buses, fuel costs, coordinator stipends, electricity, etc). Coordinators will receive a modest stipend for their participation.

Volunteer Arrival Dates: July 3 & 4, 2017
Volunteer Orientation: July 5-9, 2017
Project Dates: July 10 – August 12, 2017

LEAP Program

LEAP is a grassroots volunteer program established to provide educational empowerment projects to support the intellectual growth and creative curiosity of refugee-youth in Lebanon so they may become agents of change. As an apolitical humanitarian US-based organization, LEAP aims to raise awareness about the plight of Palestinian refugees in general, but particularly in Lebanon, to American volunteers.
