The LEGACY Youth Project is raising money for its members to attend an educational trip to Los Angeles next week. The LEGACY Youth Project is a social justice education and youth leadership program committed to the "healing, transformation and liberation" of Napa Valley youth.
The organization currently serves more than 100 middle school, junior high and high school students at four schools in the Napa Valley Unified School District. Most students will be the first in their families to graduate from high school and pursue higher education.
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).
