(Queen Lane & Germantown Avenue)

The Grumblethorpe Youth Volunteers (GYVs) are a site-based, service youth group (ages 12-18) from schools throughout Philadelphia. Started in the summer of 2002, many of our GYVs found a home at Grumblethorpe while attending our Elementary Education Program (GEEP). During the school year, GYVs meet monthly. They utilize a group charter and a self-elected board. They help with events at Grumblethorpe and Historic Germantown, as well as raise funds by selling homemade pies, cookies, jams, and ice cream throughout the year. During the summer months some of the GYVs work with a resident farmer to grow produce and run a weekly farmstand as paid staff. Fieldtrips allow the GYVs to explore and learn history both locally and regionally.
