Mission: The mission of G.O.A.L (Girls and Guys Organized for Anointed Living, Inc) is to equip young ladies and gentlemen for spiritual, social and personal growth. We provide tools for young ladies and gentlemen to flourish in each season of life through meaningful mentorship, exposure to the arts and ongoing educational opportunities. We host community outreach activities to foster civic and moral responsibility both locally and nationally. Girls & Guys Organized for Anointed Living empower both males and females to develop their communities and become positive role models in due season.

Results: Girls & Guys Organized for Anointed Living TIMELINE: WINTER Season Program Highlights: December 2009 - We started as a group of dynamic young ladies who desired to bring cheer and share love with our elders through Christmas Caroling. Our first Christmas Carol Adventure began at the Westbury Heath and Rehabilitation Center. December 2010 - Young girls and guys were invited and trained alongside active church youth members to spread Christmas Cheer again through Christmas Caroling at the Westbury Health and Rehabilitation Center. Then, we were asked to visit and sing to the elders at Griffin Assisted Living Center. SPRING Season Program Highlights: April 2011 - Our first Annual Spring Tea party was held at TeaFuse in Atlanta to give our girls and guys the opportunity to develop their social, etiquette and presentation skills. The youth made presentations on topics they were passionate about and their were educational demonstrations on the history of tea and traditions long time ago. SUMMER/FALL Season Program Highlights: September-October 2011 - We offered sewing training sessions for our members and then a community sewing session was held at the Peachtree City Library to teach this craft to the community at large free of cost. During these sessions documentaries were shown addressing the state of orphans in today’s society and discussions were held to see how we can fulfill our civic duty to give back an item sewn with love. November 2011 - Our members and community sewing participants were invited to attend our Children’s Home tour held at the Georgia Baptist Children's Home-Palmetto Campus. Gift baskets were presented filled with items requested on their needs list and items sewn during our sewing sessions. After the tour, attendees enjoyed a Christmas Carol Concert together at Spelman College. WINTER Program Highlight: December 2011 - A large group of talented girls came together, first at a sleepover where they rehearsed and bonded together before visiting two new assisted living centers. They shared Christmas cheer and cookies home-baked with lots of love and care. This year's Christmas Caroling experience took place at the Fellowship Senior Services and the Baptist Manor assisted living Center on the Palmetto Campus of the Children's Home. April 2012: Our 2nd Annual Tea Gathering was a great success. This year's "Guys & Gals Classic Tea Ball" was held at Southern Oaks in Fayetteville, GA. Our members and community enjoyed each other's company in a formal picturesque setting, our girls and guys learned how to waltz and presentations were given by dynamic speakers on how to make a difference in their home communities and ministries.

Hi my name is Orelia Brown, and I attended a tea ball hosted by G.O.A.L. I have never attended anything like it. It was very elegant and well organized for all ages, yet it was still about serving God. It was an awesome first time experience for me. I was also able to attend today's Father's Day program (6/16/12). I had a beautiful time with them and rejoicing at the same time as they cared for and shared for others at the nursing home. Being apart of this organization has really blessed my life.

I have had the opportunity to work with this organization and they are really inspiring and focused towards building the morales of the future generation. GOALS has ministered to the elderly in nursing homes, they have sung for them, given them gifts, prayed with them and mentored them every year, especially around the times of Thanksgiving and Christmas.
GOALS has also tutored, mentored and minister to youths in and around the community. They have mentored young girls to be ladies and young boys to be gentlemen. They have helped to tutor "At risk" students in schools and workshops in the Metro Atlanta area. They have provided scholarships to youths going off to college and has funded youths who have been admitted for training in technical skills centers.
GOALS has raised funds for contribution into Missions in Africa, Haiti , Peru, The Dominican Republic and many missions groups in churches and organizations. I would encourage anyone who seek to invest or sponsor a worth while effort or organization to consider investing your time and efforts with Girls and Guys Organized For Anointed Living , Inc.

I had the priviledge of attending the book club luncheon with G.O.A.L. in the beautiful town of Serenbe. This luncheon gave donors an opportunity to connect with all the young ladies of G.O.A.L. Additionally, the city of Serenbe is absolutely beautiful. Many young girls would not normally have an opportunity like this to experience new cities if that wasn't something they did with their parents.

I enjoyed myself thoroughly and cannot wait to participate in another G.O.A.L. event.

G.O.A.L is absolutely amazing. If you have children and youth who need to be mentored , who are interested in learning about the Arts, GOAL is the program for them. This program teaches our children about servant hood and leadership, and the importance of giving back to the community. most importantly it teaches our children/youth about having a relationship with our God! I had the opportunity to participate in the Christmas Caroling at the nursing homes with our teens, it was so refreshing to see the faces of those we ministered to light up with joy! I'm so thankful for the relationships that I gained through G.O.A.L!

G.O.A.L is AMAZING. The College Preparation Challenge meeting was phenomenal and fun! The speakers were great, and gave a lot of useful information that we will benefit from as we enter into our college experience. Everything from the icebreaker, to prayer, prizes, people, and food were great. I will never forget this experience, it was truly a blessing. (:

I had the fortunate opportunity present a college preparation challenge presentation to high school students and rising college freshman. It was a formative session empowering young students on the merits of pursuing academic and professional aspirations.

GOAL is a wonderful organization for girls and guys!!! It helps you to express yourself as a young person and give back to the community and to the world. I enjoy being able to express myself and the feelings i have about God with the other young people in the organization. Being able to be actively involved in an organization such as this is exciting and allows you to interact with different types of people. This organization has allowed me to have a lot of exposure and great experiences. i had the opportunity to attend a tea party,sing with the fellow members of the organization at a nursing home,visit an orphanage and minister to the young people. This organization is truly a blessing!!! :)

This organization is outstanding to say the least. Since the day the idea was birthed in the founders mind, I have always appreciated the thought behind it. GOAL is all about making a difference and being a voice for so many other voices that may have been silenced by the pressures of the world. Through this organization, I've seen members open themselves up to new friendships and new experiences.

GOAL is an awesome organization that is designed to specifically reach today's young girls and boys. GOAL's unique approach through the Tea Ball, Christmas Caroling at the senor Center and the Community Sewing classes has made a strong impact on the youths who have become a part of this organization. GOAL is steadily improving but even though it has gain ground there are more grounds to cover. I look forward to being apart of this organization for many years to come.

Christmas caroling with this group was one the most amazing things I did. I say this because we were spreading the of not only Christmas, but Christ as well to those. Also because it showed me that there are more to do this than giving cards. G.O.A.L. taught me that there are many things that I can do for my community, instead of just myself. It was an experience I ended up doing and was happy that I did. I can't wait to get back to do something wonderful again with them.

goal is a great organization that exposes young people to the arts through various event and community outreach opportunities. The recent Spring Tea ball gave young men and women the chance to participate in High Tea and also gain a working knowledge of waltzing. This organization truly has the opportunity to impact the lives of young people in the south metro area.

As I previous volunteer and current Board member of G.O.A.L I have been opportune to see this organization evolve from the ground up. From the 1st G.O.A.L event to the 2012 Spring Tea Ball, one can see that the affairs to this organization are conducted with precise organization and a clear vision to develop Godly character in young men and women. When I see the event attendees and the young members listening and learning intently and benefitting from the plethora of activities we conduct, it gives me great joy to know that I have contributed as a volunteer and Board member to mission of G.O.A.L.
