CONNECT TO WHAT MATTERS

Building Strength

This unique program will improve the physical and mental health of at-risk youth in Otsego County by reducing the risk of chronic disease, decrease youth violence and bullying and increase emotional and mental health factors.

College Credits

Partnering with the Otsego County Foundation seemed like the best way to connect with and to benefit our biggest resource: our children. Making higher education more affordable is a goal we support, especially when it is achieved through opportunities in the high school curriculum

Learning in Nature

The purpose of the project is to implement place-based stewardship education (PBSE) efforts at Vanderbilt Area School (VAS). PBSE has been proven to increase student performance and results in long term investment in their community.

Teamwork

Gaylord Little League Baseball and Softball is much more than just bats, balls, a field, dugouts, or any of the other dozens of physical items that go into baseball and softball.

Works of Art

The Mission of Gaylord Area Council for the Arts is to nurture and promote a creative community by facilitating, sharing and encouraging individual expression through the arts.
