As every Midnight Golf Program mentor will attest, the rewarding nature of their work with young adults in the program far outweighs the time put in.
And that time is significant. Mentors attend the program twice a week for 30 weeks and accompany our young people on a weeklong college tour.
Mentors tell us that their work with young people gives them energy. They draw inspiration from students’ fearlessness. They practice accountability with the students and with themselves. And they tap a familial-like love that gives their workaday world a sweeter perspective.
