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.
