There are many opportunities for you or your organization to partner with The Leaven to help children from at-risk communities gain the skills and build the character they need to excel in school — and in life.

In addition to the options listed below, we welcome the opportunity to discuss your ideas for ways you can positively impact the lives of children through our programs.
