"The trip was sponsored by the Legacy Youth Project, a program designed to steer local youth away from gangs and other troubles by offering daily, campus-based mentoring. Organizers also used the trip to give students a look at what a four-year college campus looks like." --via Napa Valley Register
Since 2012, the Legacy Youth Project, LLC is an Ethnic Studies and social justice leadership program committed to the healing, transformation, and liberation of Napa Valley youth. Through our Heartwork Pedagogy, we cultivate humanizing opportunities for our scholar warriors to lead, rejoice, and thrive.
Throughout an eight year partnership with the school district, the Legacy Youth Project (LYP) was fiscally sponsored by two local non-profit organizations. As of August 2020, LYP transitioned to a Limited Liability Company (LLC).
