On November 1st, The First Tee of Silicon Valley hosted San Antonio Elementary for a field trip to Rancho Del Pueblo Golf Course in San José. The field trip was the culmination of a 4-week DRIVE in-school program taught by City Year staff members. Students were able to put their learned core values and golf fundamentals to practice on a real golf course.
San Antonio Elementary, located blocks from Rancho Del Pueblo, has 4 club groups (20-25 students each club) scheduled to participate in our DRIVE program through the 2018/2019 academic year. Program Manager, Chris Moreno-Hunt says, “taking the students on a field trip to Rancho Del Pueblo not only helps reinforce the skills they are learning through the DRIVE program, but also provides a unique experience for many who tell us they live so close to the golf course but have never visited.”
