ABOUT THE LEGACY CENTER FOR COMMUNITY SUCCESS

The Legacy Center changes the trajectory of people’s lives as we help them reach their full potential.

  • We help our neighbors build the reading and language skills they need to succeed.
  • We equip young people to make responsible choices.
  • We are a local collaborative partner committed to increasing the impact of agencies in Midland County.

LITERACY SERVICES:

Our literacy services include one-on-one tutoring to children and adults. We offer the Barton Reading and Spelling program, which helps students who are a year or more behind in reading. We tutor adults who are building basic education or workforce skills, as well as those who are learning English as a second language. Our learners gain new skills and move on to become successful students, gain employment, and become engaged in the local community.

YOUTH DEVELOPMENT:

Our youth development and prevention services team offers classroom- and community-based youth substance use prevention and leadership to community coalitions on substance use disorder prevention and treatment. We work collaboratively to create a community that encourages positive norms for teens and a supportive environment for individuals in recovery from substance use disorder.

CONSULTING & EVALUATION:

Through our consulting and evaluation services, we support agencies across Midland County to improve their evaluation and outcome measure. In doing so, we collaboratively build stronger youth and families.
