Greater Opportunity for Athletes to Learn
WHO ARE WE?
A 100% free, coeducational, academic responsibility, tutoring and mentoring initiative inspiring academic success through the reward of soccer. Meeting after school, twice a week students spend 90 minutes of targeted academic enrichment with accredited teachers and earn an equal amount of time in soccer training with our licensed coaches. We foster academic and social accountability and responsibility ultimately defining and producing compassionate and conscious community members.
Project GOAL's mission is to provide a 100% free coeducational program affording every student the opportunity for educational support while being a part of a sports team despite obstacles pertaining to financial constraints, cultural background, language barriers and a lack of transportation.
Since 2004 Project GOAL has impacted the lives of over 1,000 Rhode Island middle school youth providing an after school academic enrichment program using soccer as an incentive towards increased academic performance and an overall support for success.
With school retention rates as a program focus Project GOAL has maintained a steady high school graduation rate of 96% and with 90% going on to college.
