We provide educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values, and promote healthy choices, helping young people to become better citizens now and in the future. Today’s young people face a variety of challenges including social media influences, over-exposure to the internet, family pressure, and school challenges, all re-defining the term “at-risk” and necessitating support and guidance.

“I’ve been an educator for 37 years and I’ve seen dozens of youth development and leadership programs. Most of them do good things, but the impact the First Tee program has on lives of young people is undeniable. Until I joined the organization, I had never witnessed anything like it. It is unique, and it is powerful.” – Kevin Long, Executive Director
