Since 1994 Legacy has completed multiple professional development programs in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus.  Our programs in their region have included Women’s NGO development in the Ukraine, professional exchanges, and Community Connections programs in Belarus and Russia.

Youth Initiatives have included training 360 teens at our Global Youth Village from 1990-1999 supported by the George Soros – Open Society Foundation.  In 2004-2006, following the conflict in Bosnia and Herzegovina, we trained youth and adults from that region, fostering dialogue between different ethnic and religious groups and helping participants to take leadership roles in building capacity in their civil society.
