The Midnight Golf Program is actively supporting our 256 college-bound Detroit-area high school seniors who were enrolled in our 30-week life skills training and mentorship program. Additionally, we are actively supporting over 1,800 currently enrolled college students and early career professionals and are continuing to provide them with the resources they need to thrive during this challenging time.
The COVID-19 crisis makes our work more important than ever. The pandemic created a unique crisis and makes evident the equity issues faced by people with fewer options.
We are doing everything in our power to help our students navigate this situation, ensuring this crisis will not be a force that holds them back from achieving their long term goals. As our students are learning to cope with a new set of challenges, we are helping them learn how to adjust to unexpected change and adversity.
In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, and in compliance with the governor’s orders, the Midnight Golf Program made a number of changes to our programming:
- All in-person life-skills sessions are being conducted virtually using the Zoom platform.
- Our Road Trip for Success college tour was cancelled; a virtual college fair is in the planning stages.
- We cancelled our significant public events including:
- The Bowl-A-Thon
- The Pinning Ceremony
- All group gatherings.
