2019 marked the beginning of a partnership between TFTSV and Latinx Golf. On Saturday, October 12th, TFTSV provided a golf clinic to over 50 Latinx participants at Notre Dame High School in San Jose. Latinx Golf Founder and Executive Director, Alexia Gutierrez and Rosalie Gutierrez lead a year-long tutoring program of over 120 students. Every Saturday their students come from various schools in San Jose to participate in STEM and homework tutoring with the help of over 52 high school and college tutors.
TFTSV set up a golf station in the high school field and where two groups of 20 children, age 7 to 13, participated in our golf games and practiced courtesy with each other. At the conclusion of the games, TFTSV, with the help of the Latinx Golf staff met with parents and signed up students for our Winter Season at Rancho Del Pueblo Golf Course. Of the participants who signed up, 100% qualified for our full financial assistance.
Our partnership with Latinx Golf represents an aligned goal of exposing participants to the game of golf and its intrinsic core values. TFTSV Program Director, Chris Moreno-Hunt, said “we are excited and grateful to be partners with Latinx Golf and help serve their group of participants whom they have supported and developed over the years. TFTSV is committed to collaborate with driven community partners like Latinx Golf with the intention of building a sustainable pathway for students to access golf and golf facilities.”
