On March 10, 2016, the students that comprise the Legacy Project’s executive board were invited to present to the Clark County School District Board of Trustees about the project’s objectives, and how it bridges the gap between home, life, and community for youth, by youth.

During the presentation, the students discussed the Legacy Project’s involvement in the community, as well as the positive impact it has on students of Legacy High School. The teen council group leads by example to assist students succeed both academically and socially by creating opportunities for their peers to have their voices heard. In their presentation, the students highlighted various community partners and academic enrichment programs that collaborate with the Legacy Project, such as Batteries Included, Project 150, TRIO Educational Talent Search (ETS), and UPLIFT. Each of these collaborations are essential to the success of this highly sought after teen-lead program. ETS is proud to announce that seven of the nine students on the executive board are active ETS participants.
