BACKGROUND

Growth and Inspiration through Volunteering and Education (GIVE), is a community organization founded and run by high school students. GIVE was inspired by the need for civic engagement and the desire to improve our local community. We seek to invest in the next generation, by striving to provide opportunities to those who seek them in the fields of education, empowerment, and leadership. We especially emphasize the importance of learning and promote an enthusiastic attitude towards it. Through our multiple programs we focus on the various aspects of education. We serve as mentors to younger children, provide resources to underprivileged students, and attempt to leave our mark on the next generation through our efforts.
