LEAP Chapter Directory

AFCLC does not run LEAP chapters and information provided by LEAP chapters is not official guidance from the AFCLC. LEAP chapters are private organizations on military installations started and run by LEAP scholars. Service members can join LEAP chapters to learn more about LEAP and tips for applying to the LEAP board, language professional development, or networking with other LEAP scholars. To join a LEAP chapter at your base, contact the POC listed below by looking up their information in Global. To register your LEAP chapter in the directory or to update your chapter's contact info, contact the AFCLC Outreach team at
