"It is You... 

....the young and fearless at heart, the most diverse and educated generation in our history, who the nation is waiting to follow."

The goal of the Foundation is to usher in a group of young visionaries seeking to address some of our country's most critical issues and who wish to participate in the revitalization of our nation's most vulnerable communities.


Our Business Model

The Legacy Fellowship Program seeks to bring together talented young leaders to engage in our nation's most pressing social and policy issues. Our business platform incorporates partnering with a world-class university. This alliance allows for Fellows to be mentored and instructed by some of the most distinguished academics and industry leaders, all while working on pioneering policy projects.   

Our Program Platform:

  • Allows Fellows to work on cutting edge projects lead by industry leaders, distinguished academics, and pioneering organizations.

  • Focuses on areas of concentration in which minorities are underrepresented.

  • Places Fellows on the front lines of current and relevant issues which dramatically affect communities of color. 

Our Platform

The Central Pillars to the Foundation includes the Fellowship Initiative, our University Partners, and the Endowment.
