Business Partner Network

Established in 2020, the Business Partner Network is composed of local companies committed to helping LEAP’s students find their passion in life and develop a pathway to success. As a community, we can work together to close the opportunity gaps in education and the workplace so young people can realize their full potential.

Join the LEAP Business Partner Network, connect with students, share your experience, and support them on their academic and career journeys.

      We are thrilled that, by joining the LEAP Education Business Partner Network, Steel Root will have an opportunity to give back to our community in a way that will make a real difference in the lives of students.
