We are MassLEAP.

The Massachusetts Literary Education and Performance (Mass LEAP) is a 501(c)3 Non Profit Organizational dedicated to building and supporting spaces for youth to experience the transformative power of their own voices in community with one another. We exist as a platform for young people, artist-educators and organizers to foster positive youth development through spoken word poetry forums. We facilitate arts learning spaces and build relationships among communities throughout Massachusetts.


We are a Boston Based collection of writer-educators who are united in our passion for social justice and youth voice.
