Putting Youth On The Map (PYOM) is a 4-week training program presented by the UC Davis Center for Regional Change at the SCUSD Serna Center. Participants learn how to create and analyze data maps. The data maps can be used for a variety of reasons. Many youth do not know the importance of data maps or how there may be biases hidden in data maps. PYOM aims to give youth the tools to be critical of data maps, and other forms of charts.
The Northern California Golf Association is partnering with the La Familia Counseling Center to offer their free “Youth on Course” initiative to Sacramento’s children. This program offers deserving youth across Northern California the opportunity to play some of the area’s best courses for $5 or less while kids put to use the life skills and values training they learned in their Youth on Course certified program.
Having grown to more than 115 participating golf courses, the program was originally made possible by a generous gift to the NCGA Foundation from an anonymous donor in the San Francisco Bay-Area. In 2009, the Foundation subsidized more than 90,000 buckets and 60,000 rounds of golf for deserving youth.
Free golf lessons will be offered to high school youth ages 14—18 every Wednesday beginning on April 19, 2012. Equipment and transportation will be provided from La Familia counseling center at no additional cost.
