Health Resources in Action, MLPB

The Leaders through Education, Action, and Hope (LEAH) Project is a youth development and college readiness initiative, with a focus on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).The mission of the LEAH Project is to cultivate the power of youth to transform their lives and communities through science education, and service. 


The LEAH Project recruits, trains, and supports low-income, Boston Public Schools high school students of color, called LEAH Mentors, to teach science, assist with homework, and serve as role models for elementary school students. Through participation in the LEAH Project, LEAH Mentors gain valuable leadership, professional skills, and a network of peers and adults who support and inspire them to succeed academically and pursue their career interests. By focusing on STEM subjects, students are supported in learning about topics and exploring career fields where people of color are drastically underrepresented. LEAH Mentors gain employment experience, receive coaching, build networks, and earn a stipend for their work.
