Youth Golf and Academics Program - YGAP


Founded by former Phillies centerfielder Garry Maddox, the Youth Golf & Academics Program is a nonprofit academic enrichment program for at-risk youth in West and Southwest Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We provide academic support, enrichment opportunities, literacy programming, and recreational activities to kindergarten through fifth graders during the after-school hours when they are most likely to engage in delinquent or antisocial behaviors. Children are enrolled in the program in kindergarten or first grade, and often stay with the program through the fifth grade. There is never any fee for their participation. By supporting the academic and social develpment of children who reside in troubled neighborhoods, we hope to help level the playing field between at-risk inner-city youth and their more advantaged peers.
