“We are proud to partner with the Cameron Champ Foundation in the return of Junior PGA WORKS,” said PGA President and Director of Golf at the Country Club of Lansing, John Lindert. “Junior PGA WORKS is a terrific opportunity for elite high school players to compete on an elevated stage and experience the excitement of the PWCC.”
The students are expected to take part in all of Championship Week including PGA WORKS Beyond Green. This career exploration event is designed to educate, inspire and motivate talent from historically marginalized backgrounds to pursue careers within the business and sport of golf.
The Cameron Champ Foundation is dedicated to unlocking and transforming the potential of youth from underserved communities.
“As a foundation, we believe that creating sustainable pathways for diverse juniors, from underserved and underrepresented backgrounds, is critical to changing the face of the game and providing opportunities for those same juniors beyond the course,” said Jeff Champ, CEO and Co-Founder of the Cameron Champ Foundation. “We also believe that the best way to build these pathways and increase access is by finding like-minded partners for collaboration. We are proud to partner with the teams at Medical Properties Trust and PGA WORKS to mark the return of this event so that the juniors will be able to showcase their talent.”
Junior PGA WORKS has been a part of the PWCC since its inception in 1986 until the late 1990s. The PWCC was founded in 1986 to promote golf programs at institutions that serve underrepresented minorities and to educate and inspire student athletes to pursue careers in the golf industry.
This year’s PWCC will feature a competitive lineup of 30 teams and 52 individuals representing 44 Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic-serving institutions and other minority-serving institutions from all over the country.
