GOALS is a not for profit organization that helps underserved youth through a combination of enrichment in the areas of athletics, learning and service to help others. Since its opening in 1994, GOALS has developed major facilities, expanded to multiple cities throughout Orange County and has involved tens of thousands of children over this period. Some GOALS programs are targeted in specific areas and school sites while others such as the GOALS Cadets "Summer of Service" are open to anyone interested in helping with service projects throughout the summer.
Growth Opportunities through Athletics Learning and Service
GOALS was originally founded by the Walt Disney Company in 1994. The mission of the vastly expanded not for profit organization has remained the same. Within each of the main focus areas of our programs GOALS has diverse operating programs that offer exciting opportunities for youth ages 6 - 19 years of age. GOALS has a host of interrelated operating programs which fall under the 3 fundamental themes of youth development in athletics, learning enrichment, and community service to help others. Some of these operate year ’round, others seasonally. All have a common denominator of being offered free of charge to youth ages 6 to 19 in specifically targeted communities. GOALS works closely with local governments, school districts, and other community entities in tailoring program services to specific needs and opportunities in given areas.
