The First Tee is more than sports program for youth. Through in-school and after-school programs, The First Tee helps shape the lives of young people from all walks of life by introducing them to character education and life skills through the game of golf. In a recent research study, 85% of teen participants credit The First Tee for helping them be a better student in school and 96% of teens participants credit The First Tee for improving their golf skills.
In 2017, the organization reached more than 5.3 million young people through its programs, having a positive impact on participants, their families and their communities.
