Mission: OGA's mission is to promote and motivate character, fitness, and health in the lives of our athletes, employees, and community through the sport of gymnastics. Dedicated to developing youth, OGA aims to include all interested individuals, regardless of age, cognitive and physical ability, and/or financial situation. All members are called upon to give to our community through their sport, volunteerism, financial support, and/or the Josephson Institue''s "Character Counts" program. In addition, OGA as an organization gives back to the community by providing a unique and special place for those in need to experience physical education through the sport of gymnastics. OGA offers personalized special needs classes, member grants and tuition assistance, as well as an off site outreach program, enabling all individuals to reach their full potential by learning, achieving goals, and enjoying the sport of gymnastics.
Target demographics: children of all ages
Direct beneficiaries per year: 20 families through our tuition assistance, and over 300 at-risk youth through our Outreach Program
Geographic areas served: Oregon - Washington County, west Multnomah County
Programs: recreational pre-school and school age gymnastics classes, day camps, open gyms, parents night outs, and programming designed specifically for children with special needs. We believe children will receive the best gymnastics education in a safe and positive environment. Offering safe, high quality programs is a top priority for our organization. OGA's Board of Directors has determined that quality is not measured by the medals won in any competition, but by creating an environment that allows each individual athlete to achieve his/her highest potential within their sport, while also instilling and developing life-long skills that contribute to health, wellness, and character. In the past 4 years, OGA has expanded our special needs programming to reach over 100 families annually, and has launched our Community Outreach Program to serve at-risk youth in Title 1 Schools. We look forward to expanding these programs more in 2015.

We have only been part of the OGA team for a couple of years, but they have made us feel like we have been there since the beginning. Everyone at OGA is really nice and welcoming. On top of that, OGA has the best coaches and equipment in Portland.

We are very happy to be a part of OGA.

Competitive gymnastics team classes.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The one change I would make is make the gym larger.
