On Thursday, September 20th, the Oceanside Chamber’s young professional group, OYPN visited Pro Kids The First Tee of San Diego at their Oceanside campus located at 821 Douglas Drive. Pro Kids is a nonprofit organization dedicated to making a difference in the lives of local children through golf. CEO, Andrew Holets led the tour starting with the 4,400 square foot Ely Callaway Golf & Learning Center and the history of the program that started with a small group of volunteers and served as a model for the PGA’s The First Tee Program before becoming a charter member. We met with an educator to learn more about structure of her classroom and how she keeps her students on task before moving onto another room to discuss the scholarships Pro Kids has to offer.
On September 21, credit bureaus will provide credit freezes at no cost. This is a good thing--to a point. Although in the past, these bureaus took days to freeze and then a few days to unfreeze accounts, now they are required to freeze accounts by the next business day and unfreeze within an hour. Will they be able to execute such a dramatic shift in procedure without hiccups? We’ll see. We have been getting regular articles about this new free service and having been in this area of specialty for over a decade, I kept waiting for an article that told the whole story in one piece. So far it hasn’t happened, so I want to bridge the gap between the typical articles that have addressed the crime of identity theft and the credit freeze.

If you find yourself less-than satisfied with your 9 – 5 life, maybe it’s time to break the chains of cubicle confinement.
Prior to the dawn of the internet age, most young men and women aspired for a trade job, which often meant high wages and union protection. However, the millennial generation has shifted toward technology as the industry-of-choice. This has left plenty of open opportunities in high-paying, hands-on jobs, many of which don’t require a degree, opting instead to rely on more quantifiable determiners of proficiency, specifically on-the-job training, apprenticeship programs, certifications, and licensure. Examples of these types of jobs include welding, electrical work, and CNC milling among others.
