Legacy Program

What is the Legacy Program?
The intent of the Legacy Program is two-fold. Legacy is designed to provide Middle School students with a safe community of peers, an introduction to community service and leadership skill development with exposure to caring adults who will develop mentor relationships with each student. As the students move through the program and enter High School, the program intensifies into Legacy Leaders as High School students become mentors to Legacy students. The Legacy Leaders will ultimately plan, organize, and help the Legacy participants by working together to create meaningful, lasting, community service projects. Additionally, Legacy Leaders will develop a philanthropic strategy to help fund a yearly community project.
