Campaign Story

The Problem

Out of all of the cities in America with a population over 100,000, Birmingham, AL, has the second highest percentage of single parents (72%), mostly single mothers. Research shows that children raised by single mothers are approximately 4 times as likely to be poor and 40% less likely to finish high school. This is a root cause of many of the negative outcomes in urban communities.

The Solution

LegacyWorks is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We aim to increase the percentage of urban youth with positive role models and break cycles of poverty and despair through family planning and greater rates of postsecondary education.

We achieve our vision in three ways:

1. Impact Youth through Life Coaching

On Saturdays, we meet with youth between 10 and 18 years old to facilitate practical enrichment courses such as Family Planning, Coding, & Personal Finance. We also engage in activities that support mental and physical fitness and provide social-emotional counseling through a positive role model.

 

2. Influence Youth through Curriculum

We develop engaging curricula, books, and other written materials that parents, influencers, and community organizations can use to educate and build relationships with their children, mentees, and clientele.

 

3. Inspire Youth through Creative Expression

Let’s face it. Young people are impacted by the music they hear as well as the movies and videos that they watch. Our aim is to work with urban youth to produce culturally relevant music, videos, & other creative content that inspires people to become their best selves.

 

 

LegacyWorks is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in Birmingham, AL.
