Funding for the GVCS Adventure Club is provided by Generator Z.
Launched in 2020, Generator Z is a teen-led initiative to reimagine the future of afterschool. More than 1,000 'Generators' from across Southeast Michigan and Western New York shared their afterschool experience and insight online. Afterschool providers stepped up with ideas to turn that teen insight into action. Over 90 providers across both regions received $4 million to bring their ideas to life in the next year and [organization name] is one of them!
Generator Z is driven by teens and powered by Lakeshore Connections with support from the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation. Learn more at www.generator-z.org.
