Innovators Forum

In an increasingly interconnected world, the choices we make locally have significant global implications. The First Tee Innovators Forum sets to empower First Tee teens to develop a meaningful service project in their communities focusing on raising awareness on global issues focusing on education, health, and sustainability. Selected participants will have the opportunity to learn from global industry leaders through interactive workshops and small group breakout sessions.

At the end of the forum, a total of $32,000 will be awarded to 8 participants to further their educational pursuits. By bringing together exemplary participants across the chapter network, the First Tee Innovators Forum provides a distinctive educational experience, one geared towards their need for peers who share a similar passion for learning and creating an opportunity for them to create change in their communities.
