Programs: Enterprise serves students age 14-18, who attend public and independent schools throughout San Francisco.

More importantly each of our programs is designed to assist each individual in finding his/her potential.

It is the only caddie program of it?s kind in San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area. While learning the skills of caddying, the youth are encouraged to not only to follow directions and participate as directed, but to also creatively contribute in decisions and planning of the games strategy, building leadership skills and self-confidence; the Youth Advisory Council, designed to engage youth as active participants and decision makers in community service, and our newest program, the Career Compass Program, a program to assist students in educational and career choice through personal reflection, educational and occupational exploration and decision- making. Students gain an understanding of how their interests and talents can be integrated into employment, community service and educational opportunities.
