FMGI made a $5000 donation to the Chi-Chi Rodriguez Youth Foundation, which provides one student with educational programs for an entire year. This includes support services, such as developing life skills and core values through golf, horticulture and gardening, and Native Bird Box adventures. Students also shadow Foundation team members in their work environment. Many students come to the school academically and socially behind at least one grade level. The overall goal of the small atmosphere and additional hands-on programs is to improve students’ academic performance, self-esteem and character.
