MANA® & PGA OF AMERICA TEAM-UP TO HOST HERMANITAS® LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE GET GOLF READY CLINIC

On July 23rd, 2016, at East Potomac Golf Course in Washington, D.C., MANA® teamed up with the PGA of America to provide a day of golf instruction, career insight, and leadership training for 75 young women who are part of the MANA Hermanitas® Program, a national mentoring initiative that provides young Latinas with educational and skill-building opportunities, leadership development, mentoring, and peer support. The golf clinic, which was co-funded by the PGA of America and its charitable foundation, PGA REACH, offered girls, ages 11-18, expert advice on all aspects of golf, from swing techniques to careers in the golf industry. It was created to fit the mission of the MANA Hermanitas® Program, which is designed with cultural competence and addresses the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual needs of Latina youth. In fact, the program is recognized as a Bright Spot in Hispanic Education by the White House Initiative in Educational Excellence for Hispanics. Highlighting the July 23rd event, the participants learned about the PGA of America’s Golf Management University Program, a 4.5- to 5-year educational program that blends university degree requirements with extensive classroom studies and internship experiences to ensure graduates are armed with the business knowledge, training, and skill sets necessary to succeed in a desired career path within the golf industry.
