Welcome to GYAC!

The Gifford Youth Achievement Center operates to promote a mission whereby the multiple barriers faced by many of the citizens of the Gifford Community and the Indian River County area may be alleviated and/or replaced by goals that promote the ability of youth and adults to live in a productive community whereby maximizing the quality of their lives. We also envision the Gifford Youth Achievement Center to foster holistic and balanced living by establishing a mechanism for individual growth and development for all residents.


WATCH US GROW! As the Gifford Youth Achievement Center expands, take a moment to view the photos of the construction and the architectural plans for our future structure. Below are photos of our groundbreaking and Hard Hat Tour. Please join us for the Grand Ribbon Cutting on May 15th!
