Mike Prothe of First Tee Lake Erie talks with Fred LeFebvre about the new facility people have noticed being built on Hill Ave between Reynolds and Richards. In cooperation with the Boys and Girls Club it's a new program designed to give youths an opportunity to learn golf and other sports along with working on their education. Thier mission statement - We enable kids and teens to build the strength of character that empowers them through a lifetime of new challenges by seamlessly integrating the game of golf with life skills. We provide active learning experiences that develop inner strength, self-confidence and resilience that kids can carry into everything they set out to accomplish.
The new facility is called the Datillo Family Youth Leadership Center and includes classroom space for the after school programs.
