Cost to Participants
Fore Life, Inc. offers quality programming year round. The annual membership for ON (non-offender) members is $50.00. The membership fee entitles members to over 500 hours of professional training a year. The nominal fee does not include spring and summer empowerment camps.
There is no cost to the OFF (offender) participants who are not yet members until their probation period has been served and/or satisfied before membership to Fore Life, Inc. is granted. It is our goal to demonstrate the greater value of diversion to Fore Life compared to incarceration.
Fore Life, Inc. currently conducts year round programming with weekly after school and summer two hour sessions. We also offer two and three hour sessions on the weekend. Programming is ongoing and participants are eligible as long as they are under the age of 18 and enrolled in school. All progress is monitored and reported to the appropriate agency.
Fore Life is not a “boot camp”, but a “tie camp”. Young men and women learn to become gentlemen and women. Using the nature of the game of golf to teach the difference has been invaluable. There are no lesson plans at Fore Life. Curriculum is designed to deal with the issues faced by those in the program. The life altering skills and values taught come in direct response to the issues and concerns of the participants. At each session, we deal with and discuss those issues while instilling the 4 Pillars, Fore Life and add Learning Is Forever Evolving.
Success while in Fore Life is measured by participation, attendance and reform. Participants will not be discharged from the program until all previously established criteria are satisfactorily met. Failure to meet all requirements may result in a return to the juvenile judicial system.
In addition to our progressive training that prepares youth for competitive golf and life, we also want to make sure our champions are just as strong physically. All training sessions have a fitness component that focus on endurance, strength and flexibility.
