LEAP Learning Centre
The LEAP Learning Centre provides quality tutoring to learners in LEAP Science and Maths School’s partner communities in Cape Town. The learning centre is staffed by a diverse group of tutors drawn from LEAP past students, qualified African refugees from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Burundi, Botswana and Zimbabwe, South African professionals and volunteers.
“At LEAP I have not only benefited from the immense experience of some of the most respected and dedicated educators I have ever met but also learnt commitment to the calling of teaching, in the most selfless of ways.”
– Roger BadimanyeBatena, LEAP Learning Centre Tutor
