As part of the Club’s core curriculum, every child at GSGBC participates in the Character Counts Program. At the heart of this life-style education component are the Six Pillars of Character, which prepare young people to achieve healthy and successful lives in adulthood. Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship. The GSGBC Pillar Society celebrates this journey by bringing our philanthropic supporters and our youth together to promote the life-long learning and character development presented at the Club on a daily basis.
The Pillar Society represents individuals and corporations who annually support the mission of the Club and the successes of over 600 youth each year. Annual support to the Pillar Society ensures the longevity of the Club so we can continue to offer high quality, holistic after-school and summer programs that improve young lives in the areas of academics and literacy, athletic development and physical fitness, character development, nutrition and health practices, leadership and job readiness, emotional well-being, and creativity and self-expression.
Annually, Pillar Society members are recognized for their generosity in the Society Brochure, The Annual Report, and Club publications, unless you prefer to give anonymously. Every person who gives and every gift made is extremely important.
