GFS collaborates with local community organizations on community drives for our neighbors. Learn how to support our current drive.
Aligned with the GFS program and mission, community engagement celebrates the Light in everyone: in our neighbors, families, and students. Led by Dr. Zarah Adams and teachers in every division, our students are encouraged to learn about issues impacting our city and world. They learn to ask questions and research solutions, identify partners, and engage in a meaningful, ongoing manner.
