Welcome to Future Legacy Project!
Future Legacy Projects is an exciting creative programme supporting young women to make a difference in the world by creating their own digital social action project.
Our aim is to support our participants to learn about social action projects whilst developing their STEM skills (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths).
Future Legacy Project brings together girls from London and Bristol to work on big ideas to create positive change.
During the programme the participants learn new skills such as web development, photography, video, animation and product design. We also work with brilliant mentors and have many opportunities to meet inspirational professional women.
