Sympathy + Action = Compassion

GA takes kids through a unique 6-step process, empowering kids to see the needs in their community and respond to these needs.

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 9-month program; developing critical thinking, leadership and public speaking skills while leading GA's programs in schools.

5. Group Service Project 

Action Team students lead their peers in a group service project.  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. Defend Free challenges kids with an opportunity to respond to human rights issues by packing bags filled with basic necessities for those in need.

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).
