Who We Are

   Brooklyn Junior Autistic Golfers Academy (BJAGA) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization providing peer interactive golf instruction for children in the New York and New Jersey area. The program forms partnerships with local school districts, civic associations, local churches, and private facilities for all children especially those with autism. BJAGA’s goal is to foster a commitment to young people that will promote pro-social interactive friendships, strong interpersonal and advanced golf player skills.  

 BJAGA believes that early intervention is the key to accomplish a better quality of life for young people in a caring, inclusive learning environment that promotes best effort and reinforces personal respect. Our focus is slightly different at each level but the goal remains the same; empower the young person to make positive choices in his/her life through shared experiences and the great game of golf.
