Philling the GAP: EMPOWER

Don’t feel empty because of the COVID-19 crisis. Feel empowered. The J. Wood Platt Caddie Scholarship Trust’s EMPOWER program provides caddies with exceptional benefits and leadership training through access to its network of donors and alumni. Key relationships can form and build thereafter. The EMPOWER program features six components: community partnerships, corporate partnerships, mentoring, personal brand workshops, semiannual leadership conferences and YouScience™, a career guidance platform geared toward young adults. Are you feeling empowered yet?

  • More than 100 Platt alumni responded to the EMPOWER program following a soft opening in May 2020.
  • Exelon, PwC and the Siegfried Group are among a growing number of companies involved with the program’s corporate partnerships component.
  • The Trust will continue to formalize the EMPOWER program in 2020. More information will be distributed via email.
