        OUR MISSION       



Our Mission 

TLC Fore Reading Pa is a community development organization that takes a unique approach at TEACHING, LEARNING AND COMMUNITY.  We take pride in introducing the game of golf and its inherent values, along with our many unique programs to our great city of Reading Pa and surrounding areas. Our work focuses on giving back, pouring into our community from the ground up.  Our 5 year strategic plan also includes after-school and in-school programs, as well as continuing to build on our existing programs we already have in place.  Our goal is to help shape the lives of young people from all walks of life and enhance their world through education, mentoring, and programming.  Through the efforts of our many devoted staff, volunteers and community partners, we encourage the development of people of all ages, backgrounds and skills levels.  Our focus is on reinforcing the values of integrity, respect and perseverance through exploring and adventuring through very community we reside in and share the beauty within it.
