SAY HELLO TO OUR TEAM

Join Our Mission and Inspire the Children

The One Goal team are a complete embodiment of all the One Goal mission and values. We work with passion and commitment, to transform the lives of children, inspiring them with every activity, game, workshop, or exercise. They are experts at creating safe and fun learning environments where children feel comfortable enough to be themselves and to participate fully.

We provide continued advanced training to ensure that every person working for One Goal delivers quality programmes that not only engage children, but that inspire them to be better people. Each member of the team is experienced at delivering dynamic programmes, and as they work with One Goal, they only continue to build on their repertoire of skills.

Many of our team members have worked with us for years, starting out as interns and developing fruitful careers as One Goal Advanced Coaches, or progressing into more senior positions within the company.
