LEGACY Youth Project

LEGACY Youth Project students pose for a photo with Father Greg Boyle, founder of Homeboy Industries, the largest formerly gang-involved and previously incarcerated intervention center in the United States, during last year's trip to Los Angeles. 

The LEGACY Youth Project is raising money for its members to attend an educational trip to Los Angeles next week. 

The LEGACY Youth Project is a social justice education and youth leadership program committed to the "healing, transformation and liberation" of Napa Valley youth.  

The organization currently serves more than 100 middle school, junior high and high school students at four schools in the Napa Valley Unified School District. Most students will be the first in their families to graduate from high school and pursue higher education. 

The trip supports the student development and encourages team building. While there, students will visit the University of California in Los Angeles. 

The organization's goal was to raise $6,000 for their 6th Annual Educational Field Trip to Los Angeles. But, as of Wednesday, they still needed another $3,500. The trip is from March 25 until 28. 

Money raised will provide food and ground transportation to participating students. The fundraiser deadline is Sunday.
