HOW WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE

OUR VALUES

CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT

All of our programs incorporate character lessons into fun activities, teaching kids skills of leadership, kindness, respect, responsibility, honesty, and more. These skills build the foundation for becoming a well rounded adult.

BUILDING COMMUNITY

Local public events help to strengthen the bond between neighbors, build a sense of community pride, create opportunities and partnerships, and are fun activities for people of all ages!

FINANCIAL ACCESSIBILITY

We believe that clean, healthy, fun activities should be accessible to everyone. GTEF works to keep prices low for all programs, and offers financial assistance to those who need it.

PHYSICAL HEALTH

Exercise not only improves kids' physical health, but also boosts their mood, builds confidence, improves academic performance, reduces stress and anxiety, and regulates energy levels.

STRENGTH THROUGH PARTNERING

We partner with external organizations and initiatives to bring new activities, opportunities, and education to local youth.
