Founded in 2000, Quantum Leap is NAPO’s community service program. Quantum Leap projects are conducted in local communities nationwide.
NAPO’s commitment is to provide organizational skills training to those in life transitions who can least afford training and critically need it. Classes are offered in time, paper, and financial management. NAPO believes that making important shifts in one’s life is difficult to impossible without basic organizing skills.
NAPO professional organizers volunteer their time to provide Quantum Leap skills training either as individuals or as part of a local chapter initiative.
