U.S Speakers and Specialists Programs Since its beginning in 1979, Legacy International has established Teams of Excellence ™ (subject matter experts who act as trainers, mentors, and fellowship hosts), and has a long track record of selecting strong US speakers and trainers who work directly with and provide professional development to foreign nationals in the US and other nations.  In the past 30 years, Legacy has organized speaker visits and outbound delegations from the U.S. with the support of the U.S. Department of State to central, southern, and southeast Asia (India, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan); Europe (Bosnia and Herzegovina, France, Greece, Spain, Sweden, Russia, Ukraine);  and the Near East and North Africa (Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Morocco, Oman, Tunisia,  Turkey, and Saudi Arabia).

What Are Teams of Excellence?

For over 40 years Legacy’s staff and associated trainers working in Teams of Excellence™ have designed programs that are culturally sensitive and practical, with an evidenced based approach toward improving lives. Legacy’s customized training programs increase the potential for success while helping to build capacity of local communities.

Legacy’s global network of well-placed and highly respected young professionals and social entrepreneurs in governmental and non-governmental sectors are a springboard for program expansion and scalable project models.
