The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
We are dedicated to providing educational and inspirational community programs to youth and young adults.
The philosophy of Giving Initiatives and Alternatives, Inc. (GIA) is to improve the quality of life for the youth within their communities. Our programs are designed to increase initiative and to inspire youth and young adults to accomplish their goals and to make good life decisions. We strive to create and support activities and programs that would help every individual reach their full potential. We also understand that we live in a global world and so international programs are also a focus of our efforts. The traits, characteristics and habits we have as adults are developed as children and re-enforced through our academic experiences, the activities and interests we have access to during our youth. We enrich those experiences and strive to present children with meaningful options that position them for success.
