The Legacy Project - Fresno 2020, is a Leadership Development & Summer Job Opportunity for Youth (ages 14-24) in the Fresno Area. Our mission over the course of 5 weeks, from July 6th - August 8th is to transform and develop leaders from the inside out.
This intense 5 week summer job opportunity will introduce participants to personal empowerment and leadership development skills that help them understand "why" they need to use their student voices to be change agents and "how" to affect change, while providing a safe space for youth to heal, create, develop and grow into leaders who can propose sound strategies and solutions to dealing with current and historical social injustices, for current times and continuing on in the future.
The program's objective is to teach young people how to be instruments of social change by empowering them to understand the root causes of systemic inequalities, and equipping them with the skills necessary to be educators of other youth to help create change. Program participants gain the ability to understand their current reality through historical, economic, and a psychological lens that takes into account the effects that such oppression has over time on individuals and communities.
For over 10 years in Boston, MA, the Legacy Project has given teens and young adults the opportunity to learn presentation, facilitation and other leadership skills through the VISIONS, Inc., model and provides an opportunity to gain experience in organizing and running a community arts event.
