City Announces 2015 Volunteer of the Year

The City of Moreno Valley is pleased to recognize Joshua Goins as the 2015 Volunteer of the Year. Joshua has been an integral part of the Parks and Community Services Department for over 5 years, volunteering as a coach for the Pee Wee and Junior Sports Programs. He has dedicated much of his time investing into the lives of the team participants, teaching them important traits and values including sportsmanship, fair play and responsibility.

Joshua has proven his ability and willingness to go above and beyond his coaching responsibilities to ensure each child gains confidence in the sport, themselves and the entire team.  He is a positive role model for the children in the program and is highly respected by both the parents that are involved, as well as the employees within the Parks and Community Services Department.

The skill level of each child varies throughout the different sports programs, which allows Joshua to demonstrate his patience and ability to guide and instruct children of all levels. He provides opportunity for family members to become actively involved in each sport, encouraging interaction with their children’s new learning experiences. The program participants, team members, staff and parents admire his passion and love for coaching and the enthusiasm he brings to each game. Joshua has invested in many positive relationships with his team members and families which will have a lasting effect for years to come.

The City of Moreno Valley is beyond grateful for the time and dedication that Joshua has devoted to the City’s Parks and Community Services’ sports programs. He has become an important member of the department and continues to make a positive impact by volunteering his time to enhance the overall success of each individual on his team.
