Legacy U was created to help develop and prepare inner city youth and student-athletes for college and beyond. We have achieved that by providing comprehensive workshops, athletic training, and establishing meaningful relationships that strengthen ties to the community and broadens their support network. In 2020, we impacted OVER 450 kids ranging from ages 5 – 18 and we are estimated to impact another 2,000 kids before the end of 2021 through our various programs and services.

Life Skills for College & Beyond

Life Skills for College and Beyond is a modern and innovative curriculum with a multi-pronged approach that focuses on a variety of different learning strategies. The critically acclaimed book “The Brain is a Muscle Too” is utilized as a course guidebook for students.

The course will cover topics including but not limited to the college requirement process, how to choose the proper school, and how to succeed once a student-athlete steps foot on campus. Students will also be introduced to community resources and services to help assist them in their educational and career goals. (Spring/Fall)
