BBB Charity Seal Participation
Charities that meet the Standards for Charity Accountability are eligible to participate in BBB Wise Giving Alliance Charity Seal program. The seal, which can be displayed on the charity's web site and in printed materials, helps inform the public that the charity meets these standards. This organization participates in this program.
Since its founding in 1983, GRC has served over 42,500 children through three programs: Academic Challenge Cup, Saturday Learning Labs and Summer Academies. All GRC courses encourage teamwork, task organization, flexibility and analytical thinking, as well as participatory decision-making. In addition to the intellectual stimulation of a challenging curriculum, students improve their social skills by working cooperatively with others. This is important because gifted children often focus on pleasing adults to such an extent that their social skills with peers suffer. Approximately 50 part-time, experienced teachers drawn from all parts of the metropolitan area staff GRC programs. For them, teaching challenging students is not a job--it's their passion. In addition to their own expertise, GRC faculty participates in in-service training designed to improve their ability to deal with gifted children, especially their social and emotional growth.
