The Gifford Youth Achievement Center has been a staple in the Indian River Community for my entire life. Not only do they provide safety and stability for children in low-income areas, but they also provide additional education, life skills training, games, summer camps and a plethora of resources available for the children. I had the pleasure of seeing them in the spirit of the holidays where they decorate the entire facility and the kids don’t have schoolwork. They are already fully utilizing their new building, allowing them to serve more children in the community. Although the GYAC is not immune to the tribulations of COVID, they continue to serve the children of our community with vigor. I strongly recommend checking them out, whether you are looking to donate or volunteer, the GYAC is a great place to do it.
