GOALS is a 501(c)3 nonprofit based in Evergreen, Colorado. The original inspiration and energy to create GOALS came in 2010 from a group of professional educators and river guides who combined their passions, knowledge, and networks to create once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for kids outdoors. Our unique expeditions have been carefully crafted to be simultaneously safe yet stimulating, comfortable yet challenging, and humbling yet empowering.
What began as a great idea in one small school west of Denver now serves kids from throughout the United States on many of the most revered sections of river in Colorado, Utah, Oregon and Idaho. In 7 years of programming, GOALS has provided almost 3,400 days on wild rivers for more than 750 kids.
