NHL Diversity program welcomes NJ Goals Ahead
The NHL knows that not every child has the opportunity to play ice hoockey. That's why the NHL Foundation created its "Hockey is for Everyone" initiative and its NHL Diversity program. NJ Goals Ahead is proud to be a new designate of NHL Diversity and appreciates the support and strength that this acceptance will yield. For starters, Willie O'Ree, the NHL's Director of Youth Development and hockey ambassador for NHL Diversity, will attend NJGA's upcoming 2nd Annual Golf Event and serve as its honorary chair. Founded in 1995, NHL Diversity provides support and unique programming to not-for-profit youth hockey organizations across North America that are committed to offering economically disadvantaged boys and girls of all ages opportunities to play hockey. Since its inception, NHL Diversity has exposed more than 40,000 boys and girls to unique hockey experiences. To learn more about NHL Diversity, visit NHL.com.
