#GivingTuesdayNow is a global initiative that you can contribute to at a local level. Our goal is to raise funds to support our programs through COVID-19 and the initiatives that will come after. Our priorities during this time have been, and will continue to be:
1. PROVIDE FREE MEALS - To date, we have already served more than 8,000 meals to families in our communities Monday through Friday at both our campuses.
2. E-LEARNING - We offer more than 15 different online courses for our members that cover golf, academics, and extra-curricular subjects each week much like what members would experience on-site. Our staff is also providing distance learning support and tutoring to youth in need.
3. RESOURCE PROVISION - When our families are in need, they know they can communicate that need to Pro Kids and get the supplies they're looking for. Pro Kids has already served 150 families who needed technology, school supplies, and/or golf supplies. As needs arise, we will continue to meet them.
Looking ahead, we are excited for the new opportunities that will come when we can be back together again. We believe in crisis can come opportunity with fresh perspectives, bold thinking and an innovative mindset. We will define the “new normal” when our valued Pro Kids members return to either of our campuses in City Heights or Oceanside. We will establish a safe environment first and foremost. We will modify our programs to meet social distancing guidelines. We will use technology to inform in new ways. We will revolutionize while staying true to our mission - challenging our underserved youth to excel in life by promoting character development, life skills, and values through education and the game of golf.
