The great game of Golf is the perfect opportunity for youth to develop skills such as patience, accountability, self discipline and confidence!
We need your help to make this opportunity available for as many youth as possible.
Help us raise $6,000 to cover equipment, course fees and coaching fees.
Imagine being a kid growing up in an area where it is not always safe to play outside.
Imagine being a kid growing up in a family that can't afford cell phones, laptops and other everyday items that many of us take for granted.
Finally, imagine being a kid growing up like this and also dealing with not being able to participate in healthy, positive activities.
As most group sports have been cancelled this summer due to COVID-19, the need for youth to be engaged in meaningful activities is at an all time high.
At Mathews-Dickey Boys and Girls Club, we remain committed to helping youth develop positive life skills in a safe and welcoming environment.
One way in which we are doing this is by providing youth, who may have limited access to safe outdoor spaces, with recreational activities that can be done while social distancing.
Our Golf program is 1 of only 4 inner city Jr. PGA Golf programs in the entire country!
Youth in our Golf program also get additional benefits such as financial literacy classes with their families through the Alliance Credit Union, dental hygiene classes and guest speakers on a quarterly basis.
This opportunity is not limited to the summer months! In the winter we provide online learning and testing of golf history and rules for all of the kids who participate in our program.
Your donation to Mathews-Dickey Boys and Girls Club provides so much more than the opportunity to learn to play golf; You are equipping youth to learn valuable life skills that they will use to shape the future for us all.
