2021 Virtual Global Youth Village – Important Information for those registered

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  Burundi,Egypt, Kyrgyzstan, Mexico, Tunisia, Turkey, Vietnam 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. Program Dates are July 12-August 5, 2021.

RequirementsPlatforms
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. Group Zoom calls will take place 2-3 times per week between 9:30am and 11:30 am (Eastern Standard Time in USA) . A full schedule will be shared after Pathway selection is complete. We have many time zones to consider.We use a secure learning management platform and zoom.
Reliable Internet and a computer with a camera and microphone helps you participate fully
Good communication with digital facilitator – if having trouble with an assignment or a technical difficulty reach out to us ASAPemail us
