The Midnight Golf Program was featured on CBS’s series “A More Perfect Union” which aims to show that what unites us as Americans is far greater than what divides us.
After-school program Midnight Golf teaches kids how to play golf, and to win in the game of life. The four-day-a-week program aims to get high school seniors into college — and has been very successful at doing so.
Renee Fluker started the program in 2001. It has since helped over 2,500 Detroit students graduate high school, get to college, and earn scholarships.
“These are my kids. I love every one of ’em. … I hug ’em when they come in, I hug ’em when they leave,” Fluker told CBS News special correspondent James Brown.
