First Tee

of Greater Philadelphia

 

The First Tee is a 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.

Kids become a better version of themselves when they have a space to be who they are, surrounded by passionate people who guide them to see what they are capable of. Welcome to the next generation of First Tee. Where together we are, and always have been, #BuildingGameChangers.

Our logo is a metaphor for the growth guidance at the heart of First Tee. The compass is a symbol of both directionality and guidance. The icon also represents a golf ball on a tee, and a golf ball entering a hole.  Together, with your support, we’re helping kids write their growth story.


Ways To Give Programs

Our Heart and Soul

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.

Building Game Changers

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.

Let’s Get Started
