When parents ask if we run background checks on the people who lead our programs, we have to chuckle a bit.  Sure, we run background checks...but, the lack of a criminal record doesn't imply that you're ready to lead a GOALS river trip. 

Our programs can only be as excellent as the people who make them happen.  These are the 1%.  They are the people you want your kids to look up to.  They are inspirational, dedicated, and wise.  They are part of a group you wish you had taken the time to join 20 years ago, or that hope you can jump in to 20 years from now.  They are professional, knowledgeable, and caring.  Their calloused hands, strong shoulders, and collections of campfire stories have been built by years of experience.  In many cases, they're mentoring kids through GOALS because someone did the same for them as an adolescent - and it changed their life.  They are following their inner compass, and loving every minute of it.  Their spirit is palpable - and contagious. 

These are the people our kids learn from, work alongside, and emulate.  We are blessed to call them our family. 

Think you've got what it takes to empower people on wild rivers? 
When the demand for GOALS programs is more than our current family can adequately support, we bring new passionate and talented people into the crew.   Please contact us if you're certain that your passion for using the outdoors to make a positive impact on the lives of kids will do nothing short of knock our socks off.
