The First Tee is an international youth development organization introducing the game of golf and its inherent values to young people. Through after school and in school programs, we help shape the lives of young people from all walks of life by reinforcing values like integrity, respect and perseverance through the game of golf. And it’s making a difference.
We have a 4 County territory, which includes, Rockingham, Augusta, Page, and Shenandoah Counties. As well as the Cities of Harrisonburg, Staunton, and Waynesboro. Through our various Programs, we are constantly expanding our efforts to increase the junior golf population in our area. Those Programs include: Certification classes, Outreach, School Program, Community Program, Tropical Smoothie Junior Golf Tour, and our Juvenile Diversion Program. We also work with several local schools by hosting field trips, helping lead PE classes, as well as after school activities.
We enable kids and teens to build the strength of character that empowers them through a lifetime of new challenges by seamlessly integrating the game of golf with life skills. We provide active learning experiences that develop inner strength, self-confidence and resilience that kids can carry into everything they set out to accomplish.Read more
Experiences are our greatest teacher. We believe in developing the ones that are just as fun as they are meaningful, where kids feel excited to grow, safe to fail, and better equipped for whatever comes their way next. With proven results, we aim to help kids become better versions of themselves while enriching the communities around us.Learn more
We work to actively create a space of belonging for every kid - no matter what walk of life. We offer programs for kids and teens up to age 18. We help kids discover what’s inside of them, guide them to strengthen it, and mentor them to put it into action in everything they do.Read more
