Abstract

How might educators help young people respond to current and future challenges of a changing world? In this article, I describe how educators can design Legacy Projects to provide young people with opportunities to make positive and lasting differences in their lives, schools, communities, and beyond. The connection between legacy projects and the kinds of transformative leadership skills outlined in Sternberg’s (2017) Active Concerned Citizenship and Ethical Leadership (ACCEL) model is also discussed.
