What is LEAP?

TSA's leadership program, LEAP – which stands for “Leadership.  Education.  Achievement.  Personal Growth.” is available to all members at no cost. The purpose of LEAP is to encourage students to be the best member they can be as they seek knowledge about themselves, the organization, and their community, while demonstrating leadership. LEAP is a customized program specifically developed for the Technology Student Association.  LEAP brings to life the TSA motto, creed, and mission statement.                                     

"Embrace every opportunity to be reflective, ethical, trustworthy, decisive, confident, optimistic, flexible, and innovative.  Strive to know your resources, your community, your chapter, your state delegation, your technological skills, your responsibilities, and your organization. Accept the challenge to do things that support your goals.  Communicate, motivate others, advocate for yourself and others, solve problems, think critically, think creatively, act with integrity, serve others, and be a lifelong learner."

LEAP Implementation in Maryland:
