Meet TFTSV’s New DRIVE Partners

Categories: 2020, March, Newsletter

The First Tee of Silicon Valley (TFTSV) has created a new partnership with Santee Elementary and Dorsa Elementary. Our DRIVE program teaches our Nine Core Values and four golf fundamentals through golf activities delivered at the school by their school leaders.

Their after school programs will teach TFTSV golf and life skills to their students. Participants will take a series of DRIVE classes located at their school concluding with an end-of-session field trip to Rancho Del Pueblo Golf Course.

Program Manager, Chris Moreno-Hunt said, “We appreciate and value the work Dorsa and Santee does with their student community in San Jose. We are thrilled to have our golf and life skills curriculum adopted into their enrichment activities to further our outreach goal of Developing Rewarding, Inspiring Values for Everyone (DRIVE).”

Dorsa and Santee are Title 1 public elementary schools located within 5 minutes from our affiliated golf course, Rancho Del Pueblo in San Jose where we offer extensive classes. Special thanks to Wells Fargo for providing an underwriting grant so there was no cost to the schools.

The DRIVE program includes 18 activity plans designed in a way that allows for indoor and outdoor set up to fit a variety of locations such as gymnasiums, basketball courts, baseball, football, and soccer fields.  Training, staff support and equipment are provided so anyone can deliver DRIVE regardless of their golf knowledge. To find out if DRIVE will be a good fit for your organization or school, please contact our Program Manager, Chris Moreno-Hunt.
