Background.
A child you know has applied for a 2019 wilderness river expedition with GOALS (“Get Outside And Learn Something.”). GOALS reviews each applicant based on their own self-assessment, as well as the assessments of two adult mentors they choose as references.

Your information is very valuable in helping us identify whether the applicant is a good fit for our program. GOALS is a wilderness based empowerment program for kids. We are looking for students to join our programs who are excited about the experience and have a desire to live and work within a group of their peers for the entirety of their trip - growing individually and collectively throughout the experience and recognizing it as much more than “just a river trip.” This is not wilderness therapy, rehabilitation, or behavior re-direction - GOALS uses a dynamic curriculum delivered in wilderness river canyons to carry out our mission of connecting kids to their peers, planet, and self.

We appreciate you taking the time to complete this final step of their application at your earliest convenience. Your responses will remain completely confidential. If you have any questions about the application process or about GOALS in general, please email info@goalsonrivers.org or call 720 560 8056.
