Platform for Life

"Platform for Life " is Northern Lake George Paddle's  Job Training/  Youth Leadership Program designed to inspire and impassion area youth.   Through positive mentoring and job training, we build leadership skills, shape character and challenge the participants to become responsible for themselves with their peers and in their community.  All participants will earn a  weekly wage plus be in a position to earn weekly bonuses based on performance.  

Our 2020 program began May 18th, earlier than usual due to cover   Safety precautions are in place and participants will be separated properly.   We meet Monday thru Thursday starting at 8 a.m. at one of our 3 job sites in Ticonderoga that include LG Paddle and Pickleball, Five Nations Golf and Ticonderoga Golf Course.    All participants will have the opportunity to learn the basics of platform tennis and golf and to play for free.
