An Update of Our Youth Program!

With the advancements of virtual learning, our organization is now expanding its program to a digital landscape by providing digital workshops in writing, career decision making, and health and wellness training. Until we can again safely run our in-person program, we will work tirelessly to provide mentorship to youth from home! Contact us to learn more.

As we approach Giving Tuesday, December 1st, we are raising money to support our program! By hitting our goal of $50,000 in donations this year, we will have the opportunity to give back to underserved youth with scholarships and awards for their participation in our virtual program. Visit our DONATE page to help support underserved youth today!

Advocates Foundation

This year, Advocates Foundation and APGATour have much to celebrate, from our continued relationship with our major sponsors to our participation in the Farmers Open Event held this past January 2020

Our Mission

The mission of the Advocates Foundation is to improve the health, wellness and career choices of young people, especially those of underrepresented diverse backgrounds.

Background

The Advocates Board of Directors and supporters have long recognized the need for health and career guidance in underrepresented communities. For several years, concerned professionals supporting this mission have volunteered their time and resources to various programs and events designed to enlighten and educate young boys and girls from diverse backgrounds on how to live healthy lifestyles and provide examples of paths to successful careers. ​To further its reach and effectiveness, the Advocates Foundation has partnered with the national and internationally known Aids Healthcare Foundation (AHF). The AHF’s program targeting all youth, and especially at-risk youth aligns well with the Advocates Foundation’s (AF) career development programs.

Program

Young people age 7-21 will go through a three phase program. Phase one will be a discussion on health and wellness presented by AHF. Phase two will be a career discussion conducted by AF and the final Phase will be a golf clinic conducted by APGA Tour pros. Participants are divided into three groups and are rotated through each stage.

Essay Contest

Young people are asked to write an essay entitled “Why it is important to make positive choices in your health, wellness and careers.” A $500 educational grant will be awarded to the female essay winner and $500 will be awarded to the male essay winner in each participating city. There will also be four second place awards for $250 each and five third place awards for $100 each.
