Building Confidence
For Tomorrow

At GYAC, students enter with a purpose (learn, grow, discover), prepare for success in the classroom and beyond and are praised for their achievements, both big and small.

We shower our students with love and want nothing but the best for them. Afterall, all students are capable of success… NO EXCEPTIONS!

Youth Programs

Degreed teachers, dedicated staff and volunteers and an extensive network of community partners, drive students to take advantage of educational, cultural and social opportunities that inspired students to discover untapped talents and possibilities.


Designed for students in grades K-12, GYAC’s Afterschool program offers homework assistance, tutoring, cultural enrichment, recreational activities and character building.

Need transportation? Through a partnership with the School District of Indian River County, transportation from most public schools to GYAC is provided. After a light snack and brief recreational break, students transition to their classrooms for academics.

Summer Camp

A healthy balance of academics and recreation enables GYAC to prepare students for the year ahead while allowing plenty of time to enjoy everything summer break has to offer. For only $45 per week, GYAC’s Walter M. Jackson Summer Camp includes academic reinforcement in the morning and recreational activities in the afternoon.

Why the focus on education? If not engaged in educational activities during the summer, studies show that students start school further behind in the fall than they were when summer started.

Youth Employability Program

GYAC’s Youth Employability Program (YEP) is designed to not only prepare today’s youth for the workforce, but to also give them a leg up in navigating and developing a successful career path. Whether they wish to explore a career in engineering or healthcare,  YEP pairs students in grades 8 – 12 with local employers in their industry of interest to gain exposure and experience. Students in grades 5 – 7 can take part in the Pre-Employability Program (PREP) in preparation for the YEP.
