Legacy International / Global Youth Village
Legacy International is dedicated to strengthening civil society – building bridges between people and providing tools to shape a better tomorrow today.
We are particularly interested in helping local citizens create increasingly cooperative and productive lives in key regions of the world characterized by tension, conflict, rapid transition, or instability.
Legacy has responded to emerging global needs since 1979 with four initiatives:
• Leadership Development & Organizational Capacity-Building
• Community and Regional Development
• Peace Building, Pluralism & Conflict Resolution
• Civil Society Development
Legacy has completed projects with partners on five continents, and worked with non-profit, government, and civic leaders and with youths from more than 110 nations. Working groups, training programs, conferences and events have occurred in US and 17 countries.
