20th Annual Friends Golf Tournament
Benefiting Youth Mentoring Program
September 11, 2017 is the Friends Program’s 20th Annual Golf Tournament, which will take place at the Concord Country Club. The tournament is a wonderful way to support the Friends Youth Mentoring Program while golfing at a challenging yet fun course.
Friends Youth Mentoring matches children with a supportive, non-judgmental role model. Mentoring relationships create opportunities for growth, enhance self-esteem, and improve behavior at home, in school, and in the community. School-age Junior Friends are referred to the program by parents, counselors, and social workers. Great care is taken by trained staff to match youth with the right mentor.
The good news is that nearly 100 children are currently paired with mentors. Last year, volunteers devoted over 20,000 hours to mentor 120 Merrimack County youth. There is much to be proud of but there is still much to do. Over 50 children are waiting to be matched with a mentor. Fundraisers like our golf tournament support efforts to get kids off the wait list and matched with a mentor.
The Friends tournament is great event for an even greater cause. Visit the Friends Program web site www.friendsprogram.org for more information or contact Laura Scott, Development Director, at 228-7604 or firstname.lastname@example.org to register.Visit Event Website for More Info
