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.


Students Tour TCTC

Having options is important as students near their middle and senior level grades. December 7th they got a chance to tour the immaculate, high tech facilities at the Treasure Coast Technical College. Thanks to our guidance counselor Carrie Williams, students are learning about schools nearby that are in financial and physical range for them. It was a very fun, and informative tour.
