Get Out And VOLUNTEER

Weber State Volunteer
"I was a part of a small group of Weber State students, we needed to get some service hours done for a class. We contacted the GOAL Foundation and from the moment we called, they knew exactly what we could do to help with the 2018 Xterra Championship.

We started our service very early in the morning and the volunteer coordinators were so nice to us. They had breakfast burritos and drinks ready for us. They took the time to get to know us and knew where they needed us to be and what they needed us to do.

They showed our group that our service was appreciated. They respected us enough to be ready for us and they valued our work enough to do the little things. They made volunteering an enjoyable experience, as it should be.

The Xterra race was the perfect opportunity for our group to perform service for the community while enjoying the outdoors. The GOAL foundation is the perfect organization for students, youth groups or anybody who wants to help their community become better."
