GAFY had a phenomenal week of service in St. Lucie Florida in partnership with Place of Hope, Guardians For New Futures and Fort Pierce Central High School. Impacting hundreds of children in this community, the week involved a powerful motivational session for incarcerated youth, incredibly inspiring assemblies, building bedrooms for children in foster care as well as an energetic sports combine with professional athletes for the local youth.

In 1987, Sports Illustrated chose "Athletes Who Care" as their Sportsperson of the Year. Thirty years later, athletes remain as committed as ever to charity and activism. These are just a few of the many athletes who dedicate their efforts to helping others. — Nihal Kolur & Ben Baskin

"We give students a chance to hear from folks who look just like them who have been athletes at the college level. They get the opportunity to let them know what their stories were to reach those colleges and introduce them to different career paths...letting them know, not only the importance of being a scholar at school but also preparing them with the social skills they are going to need as they enter high school and college."
