Grandstand is a space where a diverse community of students come together to share, enjoy and communicate with each other in a social way. They are active participants in hands-on, meaningful & relevant learning experiences and get a chance to express their voice and choice. They get opportunities to take initiative and make decisions, which leads to a greater investment in motivation, interest and accountability. It’s a medium through which they engage in groups cohesively within the Gateway community, which helps them build unity and confidence. In Grandstand they get opportunities to apply their knowledge, skills and attitudes to find solutions to challenges and situations that they encounter while working with each other and the community at large.
