The First Tee of Greater Washington, DC

The First Tee is like my other half.
I’ve met so many other girls and boys that have the same passion as me.
The First Tee is an amazing environment that many people should join and I think it’s something really good to reflect on.
The First Tee is a youth development organization based on nine core values that we believe give youth the important skills they need to really become productive citizens, to give them the opportunity to grow as people, and we use golf as the delivery method.
In the last 18 years, we’ve impacted the lives of over ten thousand kids in our life skills experience programs which happen right on the golf course.
The way that the core values are seamlessly integrated into the curriculum is extremely beneficial and extremely important.
We teach them different life skills like goal setting, interpersonal skills, self-management, and resiliency skills. We integrate them all throughout our programming so we’re not sitting there talking to them like they were in a classroom.
