New Horizons Dental: Full scholarships for LEAP Week

Posted Jun 24, 2020 12:05 PM

New Horizons Dental Care is offering full scholarships for local students aged 15-27+, to attend America’s No. 1 motivational leadership summer program, LEAP Week.

As longtime supporters of the LEAP Foundation, Drs. Guy and Kate Gross are passionate about the life-changing impact the LEAP Leadership program has on young adults’ careers and life.

“Our mission has always been ‘doing good’ in our community and it’s our passion to help young people get a great start in life,” said Guy Gross, who along with his wife and fellow dentist, Kate Gross, own New Horizons Dental Care. “For years we have been able to send two students per year on full scholarship to the UCLA campus for a summer program called LEAP Week. This year because of the need for a virtual campus, we have the opportunity to send many more.”

LEAP Week will take place July 20-24 on a virtual and interactive platform. The event will feature celebrity speakers including Mark Wahlberg, Paula Abdul, Dennis Quaid, Apolo Ohno, Jason Alexander, and Diplo, along with TED and TEDx speakers, business leaders, and philanthropists. During the program, topics not typically taught in school are covered such as goal setting, time management, interviewing, mentorship, gratitude, how to apply for and land a job, and more.

New Horizons Dental Care encourages qualifying students to apply to attend LEAP Week by July 1. Applications can be submitted online at www.leapfoundation.com/2020/ and students should use the name “Dr. Guy Gross” when asked who is sponsoring them. Limited scholarships are available.
