The First Tee of Silicon Valley partnered with Valdés Math and the Latinx team to deliver a golf introduction to pre-high school youth at Notre Dame High School in San Jose on February 22nd. 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 math tutoring with the help of over 52 high school and college tutors.
TFTSV set up a golf station in the high school field where two groups of 13 children, age 7 to 13, participated in our golf games and practiced courtesy with each other. During the games, we met with parents/guardians and signed up over 13 participants for our Spring Session at Rancho Del Pueblo Golf Course. Of the participants who signed up, 100% qualified for our full financial assistance.
TFTSV Program Director, Chris Moreno-Hunt, said “we are excited and grateful to be partners with Latinx Golf and Valdéz Math to help serve their group of participants whom they have supported and developed over the years. TFTSV is committed to collaborate with dedicated community partners like Latinx Golf and Valdéz with the intention of building a sustainable pathway for students to access golf and golf facilities.”
