We saw a need and we filled it.
Everyone knows that our nation’s military has been fighting the War on Terror for over seventeen years now with no real end in sight. What you may not know is that the numerous, lengthy combat deployments, and heightened operational tempo have created the most significant stressors on our all-volunteer force and their families in our military’s history.
The founders of Gratitude Initiative realized that although there were organizations providing scholarships to specific groups of children to help defray some of the costs for college, there was no organization providing a full-service comprehensive college and career preparatory program to military and veteran children from middle school through college graduation.
In November of 2015, Gratitude Initiative launched the GI College Success Academy providing a full-service college and career preparatory program to military and veteran children free of charge. The College Success Academy is delivered online to support a military family anywhere around the globe and is backed up by a team of live degreed counselors that work directly with the children and their parents via email, phone, or chat.
GI is now serving families in over twenty-two states and as far away as Europe, Japan, Korea, and all points in between. The program has produced incredible results in just three short years (click to see results) and GI has a waiting list of deserving students standing by for enrollment.
