Growth and Inspiration through Volunteering and Education (GIVE), is a community organization founded in 2010 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 serve as mentors to younger children, provide resources to underprivileged students, and attempt to leave our mark on the next generation through our efforts.
The mission of GIVE (Growth and Inspiration through Volunteering and Education) is to promote the leadership of youth through projects that will improve the quality of life in their communities.
