Martin in Sacramento


Martin is a return participant of the Youth on Course Clinic through La Familia Counseling Center at Wildhawk Golf Club in Sacramento. More information about the NCGA Foundation's Youth on Course Clinic program can be found here.
Once I found out that they were doing another golf session here, I ran up to the opportunity. I told my parents to sign me up for it, I'm ready, I want to go again. I get the satisfaction of playing sports and being in the outdoors, the fresh air. The golf course is very tranquil compared to my neighborhood. I want to be the best from everyone in the class, even though its just for fun, I still want to be the best.

Impact in Seaside


Janel and Chantelle from the Friendship Baptist church in Seaside participate in the Youth on Course Clinics at Poppy Hills Golf Course. Chantelle (pictured right) shares some of the lessons she's learned:
One of the unexpected lessons that golf taught me was that it taught me how to be patient. It also taught me how to never give up. The purpose of Youth on Course is to become a complete person because not only do they teach me how to golf, they teach us how to eat right and also give us great advice.

Life Lessons at UC Berkeley


Iyla Ollinger, a 2010 Paul Porter Memorial Scholarship recipient shares the life lessons she's learned during her first semester of studies at UC Berkeley. Scholarships are the final part of the Youth on Course continuum which help to provide educational opportunities to deserving youth in Northern California
Balancing new and old friends can be very difficult. Don't expect for all of your relationships to be the same as they were in high school! Part of college is letting go of who you used to be and growing into something more.
