During Goals for Girls international trips, an American-based girls soccer team and current or former professional women’s soccer players conduct soccer clinics, tournaments, and exhibition games while simultaneously teaching life skills through soccer, classroom, and cultural exchange activities.
Goals for Girls Clubs
Goals for Girls Clubs organize a variety of local activities and events to help improve the lives of girls all over the world. With support from Goals for Girls staff and resources, clubs host events to collect sports or education equipment, promote awareness of Goals for Girls, and raise money for Goals for Girls. The clubs give these groups the ability to have a positive impact on someone else’s life and to engage in a lifestyle of giving and service. In addition, the clubs are able to continue communicating with the girls they are supporting via letter writing, social media, and other web-based communication.
Goals for Girls partners with organizations around the world that also use soccer to empower young girls in disadvantaged communities. We collaborate with our partners to help them meet their goals, and through our network of supporters, help them enrich their programs.
Goals for Girls benefits from an amazing alumni network of inspiring young women who continue to create positive change in our world. This network consists of all the girls who have joined us on an international program. Through Goals for Girls Alumni, former participants have a built-in support system for the projects and efforts they are currently undertaking.
Domestic Fundraising Events
Goals for Girls’ fundraising events bring soccer stars from the U.S. Women’s National Team, as well as professional and college players together to host soccer clinics, concerts, and other fundraisers. Our fundraising events give our attendees insight into the societal and environmental obstacles young girls often face in many parts of the world. Additionally, these events give them an understanding of how they can help Goals for Girls’ continued efforts to overcome these obstacles. All the funds raised from these events support the ongoing work of Goals for Girls both domestically and abroad.
