The core values of golf, including respect, responsibility, integrity, and perseverance are essential life skills that build character and help youth develop into successful members of their communities.


This is why Johnson & Johnson is proud to sponsor The First Tee as the Legacy Partner, and has set a goal of doubling the number of children reached through the program with our support.

We are proud to support The First Tee because it is more than just a junior golf program, it builds character and teaches young people the life skills and lessons for success including:

  • core values like integrity, judgment and responsibility
  • communication skills
  • leadership
  • goal setting
  • conflict resolution
  • gives physical activity to children
  • introduces healthy habits previously unknown

For much of our 125-year history, Johnson & Johnson and its operating companies have proudly supported community-based programs that improve health and well-being.  The desire of the people in our companies to make a difference has inspired everything we do.  As The First Tee’s Legacy Partner, we are proud to be making a difference in more than 700 communities and to enrich the lives and educations of countless young people, helping to set the foundation for a brighter future.
