Helping a young woman feel truly confident is a complicated and multi-faceted endeavor. Legacy Out Loud has created a methodology, based on experience, research and real-time feedback, that awakens high school and college-age women to their infinite potential, resilience, creativity and voice. Featured by TEDx and launched at Women’s Entrepreneurship Day at the UN in 2015, this methodology is predicated on the concept of learning by doing and is focused on giving young women the specific knowledge, skills and practices that are imperative to building healthy, curious minds.
"Legacy Out Loud has changed the way I view myself in the world and given me the tools I need to reach my world-changing potential."

Since travel is not always possible, our virtual program is an option no matter where our young women are in the world. They have engaged from buzzing cities like New York and Chicago, all the way to a quiet hillside town in New Zealand. Although we may not be traveling together physically with this option, each module of our curriculum allows our women to take a journey within whilst being inspired and supported by other women from around the globe who are on the same journey.
We have found that our methodology is most powerful when deployed in community and our young women are most open to growth and change while traveling to a new place. We are excited for you to join us and other young women leaders on a journey of discovery designed to build confidence, solidify purpose and awaken entrepreneurial spirit. Together, we will listen and learn, challenge and cheer for each other and emerge with new found power to take meaningful action.
For young women everywhere to live the phrase "what the mind can conceive, the mind can achieve."
A study on confidence was done by Wiebke Bleidorn, Ph.D., from the University of California, reported in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, that spanned 48 countries. It proved that the disparity in confidence between men and women is not confined to one country or culture, it's universal and we are determined to change that statistic and close the confidence gap.
