Service Commitment

By signing on, members are making a commitment to serve the number of hours their position requires. LEAP and host sites fully expect members to fulfill this commitment unless a compelling circumstance arises. Failure to fulfill this commitment jeopardizes the future of the LEAP program and, thus, jeopardizes the host sites’ ability to host a member in the future. Leaving a term of service early will prohibit a member from serving in National Service in the future and could prohibit a host site from hosting a member in the future.
