The Grahamtown Team (G Team) is an organization made up of citizens from Rutherford County who have an interest in serving their communities. The G Team is focused on the Grahamtown Neighborhood located in Forest City, NC. It is the responsibility of this team to provide programs and services that support the development and healthy living of individuals within this community and Rutherford County as a whole. The G Team has been established for 10 years and has contributed greatly to the Grahamtown neighborhood. The team has collaborated with the Town of Forest City to modify homes and clean-up the Grahamtown area. They have hosted multicultural events to foster awareness and they continue to focus on creating environments that produce healthy living such as the Community Garden where individuals can grow organic and healthy produce. The G Team is led by professionals, farmers and individuals that want to support healthy living, education and youth in Rutherford County. The desire to see a healthy change in the people and the neighborhood is what makes this organization thrive.
The GCC will house an up to date technology center that will be used for presentations, meetings, movie nights, computer classes, community events and great times. Managed by the Grahamtown Team the center offers opportunities for educational classes, non-profit agencies, small groups, and youth activities.
