Empowerment of Young People
Young people shape our future. They face tremendous challenges in a world of crisis. Each one of them can offer a unique contribution. Self assertiveness, self-regulation, mindfulness and courage are required. Golf has proven to be an excellent tool to experience and incorporate these life skills. This was the astonishing result of the work of Living Golf in a poverty-stricken township in South Africa, funded by the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews in Scotland. From 2014-2020 Living Golf continued this work in Scotland with schools and health & social care organisations. It confirmed golf has the ability to empower all young people, independent of capabilities and backgrounds. In 2021 Franz Rolinck moved Living Golf to Germany. After residing 38 years overseas he is dedicated to apply his experience also in his home country: to empower young people to trust themselves and boldly develop solutions for the future. Living Golf for Peace Tournaments raise funds to finance Living Golf for Empowerment Programmes for Young People.
