Surprise Visit by Tiger Woods to Youth and Staff at Project H.O.M.E. and Hopeworks n’ Camden
In keeping with the mission of the JBJSF, we are continuing to forge partnerships and build relationships in our community. In working with the Tiger Woods Foundation, the JBJSF has identified two organizations in our grant portfolio that will also benefit from this event: Project H.O.M.E. and Hopeworks in Camden, NJ. On Monday, May 10th, 2010, both organizations received a surprise visit by Tiger Woods at the Honickman Learning Center and Comcast Technology Labs in Philadelphia. He was in the area to visit Aronimink Golf Club, site of this year’s AT&T National. The purpose of Woods’ visit to the Center was to learn first hand about both organizations and how they are helping their city’s youth through innovative educational programs. Tiger visited Project H.O.M.E.’s College Access Program and an Adult Learning class as well as with Hopeworks’ youth who shared their experiences and goals with Tiger.
