The Legacy International team has 40 years experience designing high quality international youth leadership development programs. We are excited to offer this three week virtual exchange as our way to continue to cultivate globally minded youth leaders.
Our goal is to re-create the type of community we build every summer at our campus in the beautiful foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Young people are joining us from Algeria, Bermuda, Egypt, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mexico, Morocco, Myanmar, Nigeria, Palestine, Sudan, Tunisia, UK, and USA. We will break the large group into smaller subsets called Pathways with approximately 12-14 other students and one facilitator.
In our virtual space we spend the first week building common ground, sharing our backgrounds, and building a sense of shared purpose around social responsibility. Week Two – youths will be working within a chosen PATHWAY. Week Three – the Pathway groups come together and share out. The program culminates on Reflection Day.
|Youth commit to 12 hours a week. Each day, youths complete a one hour activity assignment that is completed ANYTIME. This gives flexibility however we relay on everyone to complete assignments before their group zoom calls.||We use a secure learning management platform and zoom.|
|Reliable Internet and the ability to take and upload photos or video to the learning management system.|
|Good communication with digital facilitator – if having trouble with an assignment or a technical difficulty reach out to us ASAP||email us|
At the end of the program, youths will:
- Receive a certificate in Global Citizenship
- Qualify to receive a $300 scholarship to the 2021 Global Youth Village in Virginia
- Become part of the Global Youth Village network spanning 102 countries.
- Have the option to earn a letter stating that you completed 10 hours of volunteer service
