The G-Force transforms the culture of any school into one characterized by recognition and appreciation, where students and staff alike feel valued. Dan Tollett-Utrust Administrator
The G-Force Adviser is the champion of the G-Force and seeks to make the G-Force effective in building an attitude of gratitude within the school.
Ideally, the G-Force Adviser will be accessible to students during the day and have a location that all students can access. Assistant principals, librarians or counselors are ideal positions for the G-Force Adviser.
The G-Force Adviser has the task of helping students express thanks to school employees who make a difference in their lives in the following ways.
1. Duties of the G-Force Adviser
- Collects each G-Force member’s name and contact information.
- Ensures that G-Force members understand and accept the responsibilities of the position. This may be done in an informational meeting at the beginning of school.
2. Responsibilities for Promoting Gratitude Throughout the Year.
- Divides the homerooms in the school into 7 groups (7 instead of 8 because the superintendent is not in your school daily) with approximately the same number of homeroom classes in each group.
- Beginning with the first full month of the school year, assigns one of the 7 employee groups to each of the 7 homeroom groups.
- Posts assignments for the homeroom classes (chart provided by Utrust.)
- Encourage G-Force members and advise those who want to discuss ideas about promoting gratitude.

3. Responsibilities for 8 appreciation Days.
- Posts assignments from the school coordinator in a central location for the G-Force for each appreciation day.
4. Increase Recognition for the G-Force.
The G-Force Adviser prepares and distributes Leadership Award certificates to each G-Force member at the end of the school year. Utrust provides these certificates in a Word Doc that can be individually modified to suit the school. Also, seek to get the G-Force recognized in the school yearbook.
