Legacy’s Commitment to Creating COVID-Resilient Programs

Legacy International has a 40+ year track record providing safe, enriching programs. During this pandemic, our Health & Safety Team continuously monitors the global and local health advisories. In 2021, we adjusted how in-person exchange programs were delivered so preventative measures were at the forefront.  Continuing into 2022, the safety of our staff, participants, program partners and their families is our priority.  All staff will benefit from a rigorous training and testing as we implement these plans and once again enjoy rewarding cultural immersions. Details shared with those chosen for interviews.

Reflections from recent Legacy interns:

  • “I’ve grown so much since starting this internship! This was my first internship, so I developed both my hard and soft skills. I’ll be able to take my knowledge of proposals with me along with new social media techniques. This internship is a perfect fit for a student. I gained valuable work and personal experience through a flexible and an accommodating work schedule.”   ~ A.C., New Jersey.  Served as TechGirls Intern
  • “I think this is a great organization from which to learn about different aspects of nonprofit communications and management. Culturally, everyone is so encouraging and helpful, which makes it an exciting and supportive place to learn, work, and try new things.”  ~ D.S., Virginia.  Communications Intern & an alumni from a Legacy exchange program)
