Summit is held every two years

Opened to Junior members 13 and up


GOALS is a unique summer leadership experience overflowing with activities and workshops to help our juniors grow personally as well as in their leadership skills.  This summit is designed specifically for senior and intermediate NJSGA members, providing an environment perfectly suited for coaching each junior in creative way to become effective, compassionate and influential leaders.


Fifty youth members of the National Junior Santa Gertrudis Association converged on Nashville, Tenn., July 23-27 for an action-packed experience at GOALS. This summit included multiple educational and inspirational sessions lead by Rhett Laubach. Outside the classroom, the juniors experienced active bonding and leadership skills through teambuilding activities at Adventureworks, toured Ellington Agricultural Center, saw the Country Music Hall of Fame and experienced an intriguing demonstration on training horses for mounted police at the Metro Mounted Police Barn. Lastly, Juniors visited the well-known Wildhorse Saloon for lunch and line dancing, and were surprised to hear their newest recorded country music song played over the Wildhorse speakers while they dined. Great week of go-go-go but fun was had by all.
