With year-round educational programs for students in grades K – 12, a vibrant adult and seniors program, and a strong network of community partners, you are guaranteed to discover a connection within our walls.
Since 1998, the Gifford Youth Achievement Center has served as a beacon of hope and vital community resource for nearby residents and a safe and structured learning environment for local youth.
Looking to make a difference in the lives of today’s youth? Look no further than GYAC. With opportunities to get involved both in and out of the classroom, we’d love to share with you the possibilities.
At GYAC we want students to enter with a purpose (learn, grow, discover), perform to the best of their abilities, and exit more prepared to face life’s challenges, both at school and beyond.
