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.
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.
Professional with expertise in this field
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!
The College Prep Challenge and Tehillah Concert were very interesting experiences. I would like to do something like that again :) thx Mrs.. Stacy and thx to my friend Koneaka and her mom for inviting me to be apart the conference.
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!!! :)
