Educating future leaders

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
