For Parents

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 children 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 parents, grandparents, and children to make a difference in your family and our world. Connect, Create, Change with the Legacy Project at www.legacyproject.org.

Your children want their lives and learning to mean something, and they want to connect in a real way to the adults and bigger world around them. Make your home an empowered place of possibility through YOU 177. Find out more about how youth can take learning deeper and connect with generations in their community.
