Millennium Fellowship Project: Georgia Outreach: Advancing the Lives of Those with Special (GOALS)
The team organize soccer practices for children with mental disabilities and other special needs in the local area. They pair one on one with kids, ranging from elementary to high school ages, and mentor them throughout the semester in weekly practices. They help to ensure that they get exercise, have fun, and have a safe and supportive community of people in similar situations to them.
In a pandemic, it would be very hard to keep up their normal practices, as the organization up to this point functioned through in person and close contact meetings. Normally, the primary goal would be to expand the organization to include more children and families in our community, but now the goals must shift. Although they are always looking to expand their numbers, the primary focus is now adapting their practices to a new platform so they can properly engage with children and their families in a safe, productive manner that still facilitates learning and growth.
