Welcome to the Legacy Project, a big-picture community and lifelong learning project.

Our three banner programs reflect the three levels at which you and your grandchildren evolve your legacy through your lifetime – personal, interpersonal, and community. LifeDreams explores personal development and creating your life. Across Generations explores our connections with others, and encourages closer relationships between generations. Our World explores how each of us can help change the world to address issues like building stronger communities and caring for the environment.

We offer free online activities, award-winning books and DVDs, workshops, essay contests, and more. The YOU 177 initiative connects generations to make a difference in your family and our world. Connect, Create, Change with the Legacy Project at www.legacyproject.org.

We all want our life to mean something, and to feel connected to and make a difference to the generations in the world around us. Take a journey from dreams to legacy through YOU 177. Find out more about how youth can take learning deeper and connect with generations in their family and community, and how elders can create a powerful living legacy.
