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, language, and math 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.
Our literacy services include one-on-one tutoring for children and adults. We offer the Barton Reading and Spelling program, which helps students who are a year or more behind in reading. We provide a JUMP Math tutoring program that works as an intervention with students in grades K – 8 who are behind in mathematics. 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.
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.
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.
