2018 Project LEAP will focus on providing ideas and skills needed to develop your self and skills to Lift Others Up. Project LEAP will not be an ordinary training event. Together, Lodges will unite over common ideas, sharing, creating and innovating. This will be a day of fellowship, fun, and learning, including interactive training cells, lodge activities, and brainstorming. During Project LEAP, the Order of the Arrow program called LINK will be the Focus of Three Cells. The purpose of the new Link program is to strengthen local OA programs across the country and improve the Order of the Arrow’s membership position nationally. This will be achieved through the national, regional, section, and lodge level of the organization working together to create, share, and implement training material and best practices informed by annual JTE data and sourced from top-performing lodges.
