NCGA Foundation: Youth on Course / East Bay Asian Youth Center

Note: Van Nguyen is hiking for these two local causes. At time of fulfillment, the pledger can choose how to split pledged funds between the two causes. The NCGA Foundation’s Youth on Course (YOC) initiative offers deserving youth across Northern California the opportunity to play some of the area’s best courses for $5 or less while kids put to use the life skills and values training they learned in their Youth on Course certified program. Having grown to more than 115 participating golf courses, the program was originally made possible by a generous gift to the NCGA Foundation from an anonymous donor in the San Francisco Bay-Area. In 2009, the Foundation subsidized more than 90,000 buckets and 60,000 rounds of golf for deserving youth. Youth on Course also offers participants NCGA memberships. Membership cards will be given to all participating youth. Members will receive their membership cards once they have completed their life skills training and paid their annual membership fees. Students presenting their card to participating golf courses at specific times will be granted a discounted Youth on Course rate. The Foundation subsidizes the rounds that Youth on Course members play during these specified times. In order to participate, members must complete a comprehensive life skills education program that teaches core values like responsibility, integrity, sportsmanship, patience, perseverance and honesty. EBAYC believes that when neighborhoods support the healthy development of children, youth, and families, young people will grow to be safe, smart, and socially responsible. EBAYC works to transform under-resourced neighborhoods that have a large population of Asian families into vibrant communities that support the positive development of all young people. Within these neighborhoods: EBAYC develops transformative relationships with young people. EBAYC builds a lifetime continuum of education, employment, health, and family support services to young people and their parents and caregivers. EBAYC organizes families to improve the effectiveness of public agencies and private institutions to meet the needs of children, youth, and families.
