The Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour (MJT) is continuing its partnership with Bloom Education as the official education and career consulting partner.
Bloom Education first signed on with the MJT in 2020 to provide players new opportunities for education and careers beyond junior golf. Bloom Education specializes in finding the right fit for all individuals and their post secondary journey from both the academic and athletic recruitment side of university/college. Founder Salima Rasul told Golf Saskatchewan that her organization will work alongside the MJT and assist in developing plans for student-athletes.
“Are they taking the right kinds of courses to get them to their end goal? What kind of universities should they be looking at from an academic perspective? If academics precede golf a little bit what can we do to use academics and golf hand in hand to make sure they are getting the right kinds of opportunities. We had a lot in synergies, it just made sense to come together,” she said.
Founded by Rasul in 2014, Bloom Education serves as a global consulting firm that provides education and career solutions to people and institutions across the globe. Trent Matson, the MJT national director of operations said the MJT is happy to build on the partnership that was created ahead of last season but slowed due to the pandemic.
“The MJT recruitment program has been around probably fives years now and we’ve done a good job, we’ve placed a lot of players but there was a component missing,” he said. “When we talked to Salima it was just a perfect fit. The questions that come out that I can’t answer she’s amazing with.”
Bloom’s services and expertise in the fields of education and career consulting, standardized testing and subject tutoring, are available to MJT members at discounted rates.
As for the MJT Saskatchewan based events there are five booked for this coming season and the MJT Mini-Tour schedule will be released in the next few weeks.
