Since 1997, First Tee has introduced the game of golf and its inherent values to the more than six million young people. On golf course and in elementary schools, we’ve helped shape the lives of young people from all walks of life by teaching them values like integrity, respect and perseverance through the game of golf. In addition to learning fundamentals of the golf swing and the game, our character education and life skills programs help young people prepare for success in high school, college and life.

In 2013, Indiana became the first state in the country to manage First Tee programs statewide, allowing us to better coordinate programming and fundraising efforts. In 2020, First Tee would like to continue the success.

Through our Corporate Partners, we hope to recruit businesses who wish to not only financially support First Tee but also to share the mission of our organization through joint marketing efforts. As a community, we must identify new ways to reach our youth and encourage them to succeed. We think golf is the answer.
