Team LEGACY consists of men and women who are proactive about supporting youth career mentoring and workforce readiness as a method of combating high rates of high school dropouts. Help us keep future members of the workforce in school.

 

LEGACY Youth Development Institute is a workforce readiness initiative for high school students offered by Gulf South Leadership Institute. Legacy partners with the adult professional community to equip participants with a three-component approach for youth career development: fostering applied skills, exposing to a wide range of careers and offering youth development services – mentoring, guidance and crisis intervention. Professionals are drawn from different fields, namely: health care, wellness and fitness, city government, law enforcement, banking, technology development, industrial science, engineering, wildlife and fisheries, theater and fine arts.

The main objective of the program is to develop young people who: pursue higher education, attain meaningful career goals, and possess life skills and problem solving skills. This is done through diverse learning environments (interactive workshops, peer discussion groups, problem solving projects, communication opportunities, service opportunities) designed to encourage critical thinking, inspire problem solving and develop life skills. The three components are: critical thinking, problem solving and life skills development form the core of LEGACY’s approach and curriculum. The program provides positive mentoring and guidance, facilitates critical thinking, stimulates problem solving skills and develops life skills to help mold young professionals who will serve as the future workforce of our local communities.

Gulf South Leadership Institute is honored to provide this initiative in partnership with the adult professional community too equip participants with a three-component approach for youth career development: fostering applied skills, exposing to a wide range of careers and offering youth development services – mentoring, guidance and crisis intervention.
