One of life’s great accomplishments may be finding employment that is fun, exciting and fulfilling. TGA Works provides high school golfers an introduction to the vast network of jobs, mentors and interests that the golf community provides. The TGA Foundation works with community groups like First Tee programs, and the Texas Junior Golf Alliance to carefully select motivated high school age students. Prospective interns complete a thorough application process detailing their interests and goals and are interviewed by both the TGA representative and their prospective club. Once hired, interns work on a rotating schedule providing them with opportunities to work in multiple areas of club operations. As part of the club commitment, interns are also given opportunities to learn and play the game of golf. The clubs gain access to young people with a golf background to fill seasonal employment needs and up to $3,000 in grant funding from the TGA Foundation to offset the personnel costs.
*Due to COVID-19 the TGA has made the difficult decision to cancel the TGA Works Internship program for 2020.*
Any questions can be directed to Kelly Kilgo at email@example.com.
- Introduce motivated youth to the many highly respected jobs and careers available in the golf industry.
- Help TGA clubs invest in their local communities.
- Help grow the game with golf instruction and course access for high school golfers.
