In 2002 we introduced a mentoring program that is available for all Platt Caddie-Scholars. To date, over 130 men and women have volunteered to be mentors.
This program has been created as an avenue to expose our caddie-scholars to the realities of the job market. The resources available through golf can allow you to spend time with people in various industries and job markets. Hopefully, the program will give our caddies a better chance to experience the workplace environment and learn more about the variety of career opportunities that are available.
Good programs should be "win/win" situations. Caddie-scholars will be able to get a first-hand look at your specific industry and make a more informed decision about their future. Mentors and employers will have the opportunity to meet energetic young people who are expressing an interest in their business. The Scholarship should benefit through increased exposure to the business community, enhancing the prospect of improved corporate contributions.
A core piece of our mentoring program is the caddie mentoring workshop, held every year prior to the annual brunch. Mentors from many different fields will be available to talk about their life and career experiences with our caddies.
