When we think of First Tee’s mark on the world, what comes to my mind is putting kids and their families first, building confidence despite new challenges, and perseverance. Our values are as important today as ever, and your support is what allows us to continue.
It may go without saying, but first and foremost our collective priority is and will remain the safety of our network. From participants and their families to 20,000+ adults who support them throughout First Tee we are committed to putting their safety first.
We are proud of our network for being agile, creative and innovative during this unprecedented time. While we have had to cancel or postpone in-person trainings, participant events and work-related travel, we are working from home and have ramped up our support of the network through:
- Enhanced communications and COVID-19 related webinars
- Facilitating peer to peer interaction and support through internal channels
- Creating and providing digital resources to chapters and coaches
- Sharing uplifting content and updates from around the network through our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter
And though we’re focused on chapter support through the current conditions, we’re simultaneously innovating and recalibrating our timeline on important projects like enhanced technology and curriculum. Our goal is to ensure we emerge from this crisis better positioned than ever to empower today’s young people for the future.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time, and for your continued support. We are all in this together, and we have all the confidence we will make it through. Our thoughts are with you. Please stay safe.
