Legacy Education Fund

The Legacy Education Fund (LEF) supports the work of students in the Yampa Valley (at all three Routt County school districts) as they become responsible members of their communities. The LEF grants money for teacher projects that empower youth and community members through place-based learning.  What is place-based learning?  It is couching education in the unique cultural and environmental landscape of Routt County.  It is ensuring that our students know the past and present details of their hometown and mountains and rivers.  It is inspiring stewardship and a sense of place.  

Deadline for the Fall 2014 Grant Cycle will be October 15th.  This will be the last grant cycle for LEF.
