Meadows Valley Mentors
MeadowCreek Golf Resort sponsors an innovative program for young people in grades 7 through 12. Since 2012 local New Meadows students have received golf instruction and played a few rounds at wonderful MeadowCreek Golf Resort, and are coached in the sport of tennis and pickleball. But, there’s an added bonus. The students are paired with a mentor —not a golf or tennis mentor — but someone who has had a successful career in his or her working life. The goal is to provide these students with inspiration and information on what they might aspire to when they “grow up”. The MeadowCreek Mentor program is ongoing, open to students from all areas, grades 7 through 12.

Do you see a career path your young person has expressed interest in? There is a wide variety to choose from.
If a local young person wants to learn what a certain type of career entails, what the day-to-day is like, what the rewards are and so on, there is no better starting point than right here at MeadowCreek.
What is the price of this? There is no cost to the participants. The golf, tennis and mentoring are all provided by MeadowCreek gratis. MeadowCreek asks that a parent, or other responsible adult joins the youngster (certain conditions apply).
Anyone with a young person who would like to participate in this program should contact our General Manager & Head Golf Professional, at the ProShop phone 208-347-2555. The young person will be asked to communicate vocational areas they are interested in. MeadowCreek will try to match them with one of their mentors.
Get your young people excited about careers. The golf and tennis are free; the mentoring is priceless.
