Leaders Emerging to Advance Peoria (L.E.A.P) is a 6-week leadership program designed by the Young Professionals of Greater Peoria to develop personal leadership skills and empower young professionals to become active in the community. This year we are focusing on speakers that have led and/or made significant pivots during the COVID-19 pandemic.
