Every summer, GIVE hosts its selective summer program, an opportunity for some of the organization’s most passionate volunteers to implement innovative ideas in order to expand our mission to serve our community. Through our summer program, 20 committed members meet every Saturday in the summer to work on developing and implementing workshops for a variety of subjects. The workshops’ topics range from STEM, Arts and Crafts, English and Critical Reading, and more.

GIVE believes in the importance of nurturing social entrepreneurship—our summer program is a valuable opportunity for our volunteers to develop this essential skill.
