The Legacy Leaders program began during the summer of 2017 in order to provide a supportive space for girls ages 12-17. Meeting on a weekly basis, Legacy Leaders come together to share a meal, discuss current topics of interest, have fun, and engage with women leaders from the community. Guest speakers have covered such topics as mindfulness, poetry, business leadership, nutrition, journalism, and several other issues meant to empower the girls and provide them with positive options for future goals.
