Goals Beyond the Net is dedicated to changing the lives of Haitian children who are living in severe poverty in Haiti. We have created a model, which embodies the key elements of education, empowerment, and sustainability.

We developed a soccer league called the Jacmel United Football Club (JUFC). We utilize the soccer league as our infrastructure to implement our programs-educational scholarships, medical care, character development, English school. We also have implemented economic empowerment projects (sustainable gardens and a goat project) for the parents of these children.

GBTN strives to change the lives of impoverished children through the means of the beautiful game of soccer. Goals Beyond the Net's structured soccer league teaches qualities such as discipline, leadership, teamwork, dedication and citizenship.

GBTN's commitment to education is reflected through the requirement that all players be enrolled in school. Those players who can not afford school are sponsored by GBTN.

Using the children's love for soccer, GBTN teaches them the importance of looking beyond the net; by using the skills they learn in our Programs they are able to grow into individuals who find success on and off the field.
