"Each graduate was presented with a special watch, donated by Mr. Gardella, as a memento for each student’s commitment to education, life-long learning and positive contribution to the community of Napa. Each watch was emblazoned on the back with “Legacy 2014 VHS” to remember their dedication to the Legacy program as well as their role as a founding member of Legacy." --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).
