Diversity & Inclusion
The American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) is committed to creating an engaging, safe, and inclusive environment. We welcome people from all backgrounds and believe by embracing diverse perspectives, we are better equipped to accomplish our mission of developing golf’s next generation.
While we provide a platform for junior golfers from around the world to earn college golf scholarships, we value developing great people first. Our programs focus on respecting the history, traditions and etiquette of the game, giving back and personal growth.
Our internship seeks to diversify the golf industry. We recruit quality young men and women from all walks of life who bring their passion to work every day. We provide training and hands-on experiences that open doors to careers in golf, sports and the business world.
Our values are clear. We show up on time. We share a great work ethic. We start early and end late. We solve problems by bringing a spirit of cooperation to work every day. We put the juniors first. We believe we cannot thank those enough who generously support our efforts.
