Our core program to reach students is the Greattly Increase Program. It is deployed to high school, college and middle school students.
GREATTLY INCREASE PROGRAM
Greattly Gives presents "Greattly Increase" to deliver programs that provide access to life-based education to set high school students up for success. The program is designed to increase what we like to call "community well-being" or helping everyone to be better off. We support traditional education by tackling critical issues which are generally not addressed by current school curriculums. These topics include financial education, goal setting & achievement, mental well-being, and personal and career development.
By concentrating on the most unmet needs of our communities we aim to enhance and support student well-being and set them up for future success.
Program education is delivered by high-impact professional speakers including pro athletes, Pro Football Hall of Famers, other professionals and community pillars that excite the community and are gifted with the ability to connect, uplift, educate and inspire students.
