About IGB

The IGB (I Gotcha Back) Program, a 501(c)3, has been in operation since August 2007, utilizing community resources and volunteers to help guide many young people over the years. We have exposed young people to mentors, motivational speakers, classroom activities, cultural events, outdoor activities, culinary exploration, volunteer opportunities, recreational outings, and leadership symposiums. We offer a full Summer Enrichment Program (SEC) and IGB MAP (Mentoring After School Program) for K-5th graders. We have established partnerships with www.Askmeno.com, Various financial institutions, Restoring Hope Counseling, Inner Health 24/7, and PEAK Literacy to develop and implement our program. We are currently partially funded by the generous taxpayers of Alachua County through the Children’s Trust of Alachua County to offer this program. These experiences and interactions have empowered many young people to Dream Higher, Expect Greater, and Accomplish More!
