MAXWELL AIR FORCE BASE – The Language Enabled Airman Program is accepting cadet applications now until March 15. Those intending to submit applications must apply online by visiting www.airuniversity.af.edu/AFCLC.
LEAP is a career-spanning program aimed to sustain and improve Airmen’s language and cultural capabilities. Managed by the Air Force Culture and Language Center, the program seeks to develop cross-culturally competent leaders who can meet Air Force global mission requirements.
Participants in LEAP are required to complete online training, eMentor courses and attend periodic language intensive training events. Successful completion of program requirements will result in the participant being eligible for the LEAP Special Experience Identifier, which could give them special consideration for Foreign Language Proficiency Pay and other language-related opportunities in the Air Force.
As of December 2018, there are currently 3,084 participants in the Language Enabled Airman Program.
