Promoting Sports and Business Mentorship
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WALTHAM, MA – July 28, 2014 – Softworld, Inc, a multifaceted staffing and consulting firm, has begun a company-wide volunteering program with Ready Set Golf, a nonprofit golf program pairing teens & local business professionals as mentor-mentee golf buddies.
Ready Set Golf caters to two types of golf students - Boston-area high schoolers and industry professionals who will serve as business mentors to the youth as well as fellow students. The appeal to integrating these two age demographics is the "buddy" mentoring system, in which each high school student will be paired with a "master student" who will serve as their business mentor and golf buddy. Not only does the program bridge the generation gap in the golf industry by exposing urban youth to the sport, but it also provides ambitious students with a knowledgeable mentor, golf peer and friend. Pairs will share a common interest in business while challenging and inspiring each other through learning golf together.
“Our team is very excited to be partnering with this program,” said Softworld Vice President of Business Solutions, Alan Sarasohn. “We have so many people that are passionate about sharing the combination of business, mentoring and golf with these great kids.”
“Our mission is to democratize golf and inspire urban youth,” said Ready Set Golf Founder and Director, Margaret Efthim. “Ready Set Golf brings generations together to teach, share, play and create lasting relationships between urban students and adult mentors.”
“It is fantastic working with such a great cause,” said Softworld Director of Biometrics, Tim Southwick. “I love working for a company that wants its team to give back.”
Several members of the Softworld team have already begun volunteering with great kids from around Boston. For more information on Ready Set Golf, visit their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/RSGBoston or Twitter at https://twitter.com/Ready_Set_Golf.
