see things from our perspective
The Legacy Academy school model is a framework for minority serving schools everywhere. Through professional development partnerships with schools and community based organizations, we can help your team reconsider how you connect and contribute to the community you serve, and build supportive structures to be more equitable. We believe that an equitable workplace sets the stage for equitable work. When we’ve succeeded, schools and organization will positively impact social, political, and economic empowerment for their communities.
