Peek at our Pride Tour
Date: April 19, 2023
Time: 4:00 pm
Location: Gifford Youth Achievement Center
The Gifford Youth Achievement Center will be hosting a ‘Peek at our Pride Tour’ on Wednesday, April 19, 2022 at 4:00 p.m. Tours are the perfect opportunity for new and seasoned residents to fall in love with the Center’s mission: to create, with God’s guidance, educational, cultural and social opportunities that enhance the lives of the youth and families we serve.
Approximately 250 students in grades kindergarten through twelfth, from across Indian River County, are enrolled in GYAC’s educational afterschool program. Four days a week, students receive homework assistance and, if needed, one-on-one tutoring. Weekly enrichment activities include lessons in the science explorers club, youth employability skills, gardening, tennis, cosmetology and much more. In addition, students participate in several off-site cultural and social outings throughout the year.
In June, GYAC’s enrollment balloons to nearly 300 students who attend the Center’s summer camp, where educational instruction continues. Afternoons are filled with plenty of time for recreation, including weekly trips to the pool, bowling alley and skating rink.
That’s not all. As part of the Beyond Special K (BSK) program, GYAC also hosts weekly exercise classes: low impact aerobics and qigong for adults and senior citizens. Plus, a mobile food pantry and food delivery for nearby homebound seniors is offered twice a month.
Learn more about GYAC during one of our famous “red carpet tours,” led by Freddie Woolfork, GYAC’s Director of Public Relations and Facilities Operations. We invite you to enjoy refreshments, followed by a Q&A session with the Center’s leadership team.
