G.O.L.F. In The Parks
Our Golf Mission
G.O.L.F. in the Parks Is a Golf infused community-based initiative that facilitates mindfulness, the mind-body connection, self-sufficiency, and fitness within the community we serve.
G.O.L.F. (Goals, Opportunity, Leadership and Fun) is a collaborative project between @ The House, Inc. and First Tee of Greater Baltimore. First Tee is an international youth development organization that introduces golf and its values to young people from all walks of life. They supplied us with the learning centers to instruct our Youth.
2022 GOLF SUMMER YOUTH INITIATIVE
This year like all the rest we had a great time with our Youth. We were able to serve 30 inner city youth aged 5-17 years old with Golf instruction, peer support, mental wellness support, arts and craft, self-awareness interventions, and exploration. While housed at Forest Park Golf Course for the Golfing instruction, we were also afforded the opportunity to go to Mt. Pleasant Golf Course as well as Clifton Park Golf Course. There we taught Golf theory, course management, putting, chipping, and effective swing and hitting. Some of our Youth struggle with learning disabilities, emotional distress, broken homes, and crime-driven neighborhoods which limits their growth and eventually makes them a product of their own environment. This program was birthed out of support for not just the Youth we serve but the entire family by linking them to support needed to help facilitate wellness and wholeness as a unit.
