1. GA Interns

Our interns don't fetch coffee - they develop the next generation of thinkers, leaders and doers. These high school and college aged students commit to a 6-month program; developing critical thinking, leadership and public speaking skills while leading GA's programs in schools.

3. Assembly

Action Team students participate in leading an inspiring assembly, sharing what they've learned and encouraging their peers to respond.


4. Fundraising

Each student is challenged to spend 4 weeks fundraising to achieve a school wide goal. Every cent raised is used to fund the school's service project.

5. Group Service Project

Action Team students lead their peers in a group service project. We currently offer three key programs:

Something to Eat challenges kids to respond to the local need of hunger and poverty. Students package thousands of meals which are distributed to local food banks. (14-weeks)

Defend Free- Anti-Human Trafficking challenges kids with an opportunity to respond to human rights issues by packing bags filled with basic necessities. (14-weeks)

Defend Free- Homelessness shines a light on the gravity of homelessness in our community. We offer virtual (4-week), hybrid (4-week) and in-person (14-week) programs, each ending with a group service project packing bags filled with basic necessities.

6. Compassion Challenge

Action Team students identify their own personal passions for service and complete their Compassion Challenge by serving at least two hours impacting a need around them- anything from feeding the homeless, to walking animals and assembling bikes for homeless children (pictured here).
