So much of who we are is displayed in the work we do, as we tirelessly strive to preserve, promote, and celebrate the rich heritage, traditions, and cultural identity of the Guyanese community in Tampa Bay and beyond. See what we're passionate about below.

As part of our mission to promote cross-cultural awareness and unity between American and Guyanese communities, our organization provides educational opportunities, aid during hardships and emergencies, and support to new Guyanese immigrants in Tampa Bay. Read about some of the ways we've served and continue to serve below.

Paint Your Heart Out Tampa Bay

Did you know that in 2012, GCNTB became a Paint Your Heart Out Tampa Bronze Brush Sponsor?


This city-wide program strives to enrich lives and revitalize our community through annual volunteer efforts to paint and revamp the homes of our seniors, veterans, and disabled neighbor's. With each brush stroke, we've looked forward to lending a hand throughout the years.

2019 - Hurricane Irma Relief Efforts

Helping and assisting those in need is our first love. Through volunteering and charitable activities, we enjoy supporting Tampa Bay and abroad as locally engaged citizens. At the heart of our organization lies the determination to improve the quality of life for Guyanese, Guyanese-Americans, and those in need at home and overseas.


Our colorful and diverse GCNTB family is a beautiful illustration of Guyana's national motto: 

"The Land of Many Waters".


Moreover, our annual Taste of Guyana event is one of our favorite ways to promote cross-cultural awareness, appreciation, understanding, and unity, between American and Guyanese communities. During this event, we are extremely proud to endorse cultural enrichment and diversity through Guyanese cuisine, cultural entertainment, lectures, and so much more.


In addition, our event offers Tampa citizens an opportunity to not only celebrate Guyanese culture and traditions but raise proceeds for homeless pregnant woman and their children through Alpha House and funding for college-bound high school graduates.
