Doug Hodges, PGA
Interim Board President, Executive Director
"I am firmly committed to the vision of a world in which every child feels loved and is free to pursue their passion and fulfill their mission."
"I became interest in the SwingPals program because it has a different approach to help children recognize and reach their greatest potential for a more fulfilling life. Thinking outside the box with programs such as HeartMath to improve the emotional health of a child is so important in building character. Seeing the children gain the confidence to step up and try new things is very gratifying. It just warms your heart to see these children blossom into confident, caring, and responsible young boys and girls."
"I am serving on the SwingPals board because I know how much of a difference the organization makes in the lives of young people. SwingPals is an extremely special charity and being a part of it is very special to me."
"Every person deserves to have the opportunity to pursue their dreams. This goal can only be met by being exposed to opportunities that offer a perspective outside one’s current experience. SwingPals offers multiple paths to to this goal with a special focus on establishing the parameters and requirements of participation, strong focus on encouragement and most of all a focus on self-improvement."
