Message from GSBI president and founder, Andrew Ezzell:
I wanted to let you know about a program we are sponsoring for the benefit of the children of Haiti that were devastated by the earthquake one year ago this month. The Give Something Back International Foundations, the sponsor of the GVC program, has decided to sponsor the education of 100 poor K-12 grade children from Haiti as well as build a 6 classroom school in a poor rural area during 2011.
If you are looking for a community service project or if you know of anyone that would be interested in volunteering to assist us in the building of this school, please direct them to the following link on our website: www.gsbi.org/haiti-project.html. If you or any of your colleagues are looking for an opportunity to assist by making a donation or helping with the fund raising events, we and the children of Haiti would be most grateful and appreciative. We guarantee that 100% of the funds raised will go to benefit the children of Haiti.
Needless to say, this effort on our part is unrelated to the Global Virtual Classroom program and is not a requirement of participation in the GVC program.

Island Village Middle School has included the Global Virtual Classroom program in its Tuesday/Thursday special opportunities classes. As you read through the page note both the Core Curriculum and the Special Opportunities sections to see how this school organizes student learning.
