This summer, community leaders will gather in the heart of LA to support the next generation of Angelenos with an afternoon of golf, camaraderie, and great food at the Inaugural SkillsetGives Charity Golf Tournament.
SkillsetGives is the non-profit organization owned and operated by SkillsetGroup staffing and consulting firm. Multiple sponsorship opportunities and foursome slots are available for the August contest at Los Amigos Golf Club in Downey.
SkillsetGroup’s founder and CEO Clint Armstrong envisions the new non-profit as a self-sustaining platform to help solve homelessness and related social problems that involve work training and employment.
Initial fundraising includes contributing to scholarships to help under-resourced young people build their careers and giving military vets the social and emotional support they need to be successful in their civilian jobs.
“The single greatest factor in lifting people out of poverty is economic opportunity,” Armstrong said. “Whether providing scholarships and veteran support to prevent people falling into financial trouble, or whether we’re partnering in the future with services for the long-term homeless, we’ll be supporting organizations that can demonstrate their effectiveness. If we can get people the support they need to keep a job, we can find them careers that will allow them to thrive.”
A chief charitable ally of SkillsetGives is the Paramount Education Partnership (PEP), which provides scholarships to under-resourced Paramount Unified School District students. The golf-centered veteran’s support and social group 42MM will also benefit from the tournament.
Money reserved from the tournament will seed SkillsetGives’ accounts to invest in future partnerships with existing work training, adult education and other services that lift people out of severe poverty.
