The Wheaton Park District Leadership Program is a scholarship program that provides recreation programming for those experiencing financial hardship. So far, in 2011, 96 families have received leadership assistance for participation in a variety of recreational programs including: league sports, swimming lessons, summer camps and pre-school.

Stated a parent of a recipient of a Wheaton Park District Leisureship Program Scholarship, "The Wheaton Park District has been the only bright light in our family for the past year. So many times we have had to say no to our children because of financial difficulties, but with the Leisureship program we have been able to say yes you can do that."
