About Ready, Set, Goal!
The Ready, Set, Goal! program is a six-month leadership development program that matches a child between the ages of 9-12 with their own volunteer KidCoach. Through weekly phone calls using a guided Activity Book, the KidCoach supports the child through the process of setting and accomplishing a Goal of Contribution – a goal that benefits the child’s community.
