Creating New Opportunities for Kids

Y GOLF LEARNING CENTER GOLF EVENT We are passionate about nurturing the potential of every child in our community.  That’s why we are bringing the community together at the Orange County National Golf Center and Lodge for our Tangelo Park Golf Tournament, March 9. This inaugural golf tournament provides the means for our education initiative in Tangelo Park to move forward. We are determined to offer the best programs and facilities for our kids. EDUCATION INITIATIVES IN TANGELO PARK Our Y Golf & Learning Center is a combination learning and golf program. After golf lessons, we help kids with homework help and offer tutoring programs. Exposure to the world of golf will provide students with the opportunity to participate in a sport that will prepare them to make educational and career choices. We will unveil our Satellite Technology Center, this month, sponsored by Lockheed Martin.  This program exposes children and teens to future STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering & Math career options. Our After School Program that serves 4,100 kids in 28 elementary and middle schools will be coming to Tangelo Park Elementary School in the fall of 2012.  This educational program provides kids with the tools they need to succeed in school while providing a safe environment. Teen Achievers and Middle School Achievers are career and post-secondary readiness programs that engage 1500 students from 18 middle and high school students. Join our Tangelo Park Golf Tournament as we strengthen our communities. When you give to the Y, you help strengthen our community by making a meaningful, enduring impact right in your own neighborhood. The Y has a greater vision for making a bigger impact on education and so can you. For information please contact Mina Ford: [email protected] or 407.351.3584.
