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. We welcome your inquiry, volunteer and partnership offering or financial gift to help us achieve this mission.
