CSLEAP focuses on student loans, providing help through one-on-one counseling and advice to individual students, legal representation for those unlawfully denied debt relief, impact litigation and policy work to eliminate obstacles to student debt relief (particularly for vulnerable residents carrying some of the highest amount of debt), and multilingual educational workshops to educate prospective underserved/vulnerable students and their families on how to shop for and pay for their higher education goals and to avoid predatory for-profit schools.
