The Legacy Project: A Case Study of Civic Capacity Building and Transformative Educational Leadership in a Community-Based Academic Enrichment Program
Didlick-Davis, Celeste R.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Miami University
This study examines how a grassroots educational enrichment program in a small urban economically depressed area builds and uses civic capacity. Using qualitative data collected through a case study of the Legacy Academic Enrichment program in Middletown, Ohio, I identify factors that make Legacy sustainable and successful in a community that has experienced significant educational challenges and decline in recent years. The findings of this research include six (6) major components: culturally responsive teaching; community mobilization; building trust and agency; gauging community need; leveraging community resources; and participatory planning. I also explore these six (6) program components that inspire and sustain leaders of the program given the state of education in the community. The research question that guides this analysis is: How does Legacy, a community-based academic enrichment program, build and use civic capacity?
