For over 25 years, we’ve used golf to teach lessons about life. We’ve spun the unexpected challenges on the fairway to coach kids about adversity in the everyday. It’s not just a game, its game-changing. As we celebrate this milestone anniversary, we recognize that every one of us plays a role in lifting up our youth – partners, donors, coaches, volunteers and staff. And we collectively commit as an organization to spending the next 25 years and beyond opening the door to even more kids through First Tee.
25 Years of Impact
Since 1997, we’ve been building experiences that build character to empower kids through a lifetime of new challenges and continuous personal growth. During that time, we’ve been writing our own growth story, ensuring we show up stronger for future generations of kids. We invite you to take a journey with us through the last 25 years.
Faces of First Tee
Our people are the heart of our program. From our alumni who show up to every challenge with their strength of character, to the coaches who empower our participants to discover their full potential, and our donors who collaborate to bring our mission to life, we invite you to meet the Faces of First Tee.
Game Changing Alumni
The world’s changed a lot in the last 25 years. Kids today are growing in new environments that are demanding more from them and, therefore, more from us. From refreshing the curriculum, leveraging new technology, and reinvesting in diversity, equity and inclusion efforts, we are in the midst of a multi-year re-investment to modernize and enhance the organization. As we celebrate 25 years of impact, we’re also recommitting as an organization to empowering and connecting with youth – especially teens – in ways that work for them.
