Here’s what recent LEAP grads had to say about the program:

"LEAP gave me the opportunity to walk a mile in each department. I was able to see how their work contributes to the overall success of the property. I had great mentors along my journey and took unique pieces of advice from each of them! The program helped mold me into the leader I am today.  It came full circle last summer when I was able to mentor a new LEAP!"

Essence Wallace , Director of Marketing - Argosy Casino Hotel & Spa, 2017 LEAP Class

"One of the many things that I love about PENN Entertainment is the opportunity for major growth and development. I have gained incredible experience, knowledge, and insight from property and corporate leaders. I am thankful and look forward to my future with PENN Entertainment."

Hayley Zenon , Human Resources - L'Auberge Lake Charles, 2022 LEAP Class

"The LEAP Program is the best introduction into the entertainment and gaming industry. Gaining hands-on experience in operations allowed me to explore career options. The most meaningful part for me was interacting with team members on all levels, gaining the different perspectives of front-line through top leaders. I learned valuable lessons that will be used as I progress in my career with PENN."

Tyler Yost , Senior Financial Analyst - Hollywood Casino Columbus, 2021 LEAP Class
