Advocates Foundation live programs are back!

We are still advocating health, improving career paths, and bringing golf education to underserved youth.

The Advocates Foundation provides underserved youth with the knowledge and opportunity to grow into healthy and independent adults. The youth of our program learn to take healthful care of their mind and body so they may take progressive steps to a successful career.

We believe that all youth deserves a platform to build from — the Advocates Foundation is constantly looking for ways to support them through its in-person events.

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.

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.
