First Tee Builds Game Changers!
We see golf as a unique metaphor for life - full of unexpected challenges, where progress is a practice of self-reliance and how you choose to respond defines who you are.
First Tee exists to enable kids to build strength of character that empowers them through a lifetime of new challenges. By seamlessly integrating the game of golf with life skills curriculum, we create learning experiences that build inner strength, self-confidence and resilience that kids carry to everything they do.
With the belief that all kids deserve the chance to grow in a supportive environment with mentors guiding them, we are dedicated to building programs that are accessible, welcoming and as impactful as they are fun.
2020 has been a rewarding year for First Tee - The Lowcountry. Halfway through our fall session, we have reached 481 kids in the Life Skills classes, nearly matching attendance for all of 2019. With Covid’s impact on school attendance and on parents work lives, the use of our scholarship funds has seen a dramatic increase, with 253 scholarships granted year to date. To continue our effort to positively impact kids lives in Beaufort and Jasper counties, our goal is to rebuild the scholarship fund and continue our work through this year and beyond. A lack of scholarship resources should never stand in the way of introducing the First Tee and it’s 9 Core Values to our kids and their parents.
With your donation, you can play a part in helping us to shape these kids futures.
