We aim to create a sense of belonging between participants that reaches beyond the classroom experience and allows students the opportunity to expand their social network.
We work with a network of faculty members to ensure all students participating in GoAL can apply course concepts in a professional and studious setting.
When you’re gearing up for a new career we can get you turn-key ready and put you in front of top Silicon Valley Recruiters with the transferrable skills they want.

We want to help you
G.o.A.L. helps students develop their leadership and communication skills while promoting social consciousness. The program also serves as a student learning community where students have the chance to learn from each other by sharing their thoughts, ideas and knowledge.
The full slate of activities include community building workshops that bring together people from all walks of life including faculty, staff, students, civic leaders, community members and others. The program conducts outreach to affinity groups of Silicon Valley companies hoping to diversify their workforces with qualified candidates.
At our monthly workshops
We will help you develop your community within SJSU and through a peer-mentorship program we can make sure you reach your curriculum goals. We put you in contact with campuswide resources and other organizations which will allow you to expand your network. There are no membership fees to join our program. This is a good opportunity to be seen by these recruiters and get an inside track into these companies. We encourage you to come dressed professionally and bring your resume!
