A WorldLegacy Leadership Team, based in North Carolina, will complete an extreme makeover at the Kyrgyz Community Center in Chicago, Illinois, beginning on Friday, March 9. In less than three days, the team will build a computer lab, children's playroom, paint rooms, install carpeting, add technology to the meeting hall, and update the dining room and kitchen area. This is the 168th class of the WorldLegacy program, and the first time they will be working in Chicago. Team members are travelling from Minnesota, New York, North Carolina, as well as the Chicago area to create this project.

This WorldLegacy Leadership Team is committed to furthering the physical, cognitive, and emotional strength of children, and creating possibility by modeling a leadership role in the world.

This extreme makeover project is the culmination of WorldLegacy's three-month leadership development program. The eight individuals that comprise the team completely designed the project from start to finish, they cannot use any of their own money or raise money to finance the project, and they need to involve the community to do 75 percent of the work. The project must be complete in three days or less. This team is committed to deeply involving the community in what is possible with vision and intention. For information, or to support the project, contact Tim Saetre, 651.317.4089

The adventure begins on Friday, March 9 at noon and 8:00 a.m. both Saturday and Sunday at the Kyrgyz Community Center, 6002 N Keating Ave, Chicago, IL 60646.
