Foundation juniors take vocational field trip to Tiger Woods Learning Center

Thirty-three G.A.M.E. Club members, 15 parents and six SCGA Foundation scholars participated in an SCGA Foundation and Tiger Woods Leaning Center co-sponsored vocational and golf skills outing Saturday at the Tiger Woods Learning Center in Anaheim.

As part of the G.A.M.E. Club’s vocational and educational programming focus, the juniors attended a workshop they preselected when registering for the event. The workshop choices included business, nutrition or aerospace. In each, they received hands-on experiences in the classroom, learning from Tiger Woods Learning Center facilitators. Also part of the event was the College Access Program, where juniors ages 11-17 learned about the importance of academic resumes, scholarship research, the financial benefits of continued education and costs associated with different types of education.

Ysabel Tran said, “During the career seminar, I learned that I should pick a career that I love to do while receiving a salary.”

Armando Torres, who attended the nutrition workshop, shared that his highlight of the day was learning about the fat and sugar in his fast food choices by using a measurement system with cane sugar and Crisco lard. He reflected that he might even give up fast food because his life is too important.

After lunch, the day concluded with a golf skills challenge on the driving range and practice area where the G.A.M.E. Club members had a friendly competition before heading home.
