“The GO Project is not only a community where I am inspired to be better, GO actively fosters a space for me and everyone involved to grow into our best selves. Every year that I am part of GO, I finish the summer with some added perspective that changes the way I look at our world and how we live in it, and in September, I return to school fuelled by the memories of moments that changed my perspective and brightened my life.” – Clare
