GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
THE FIRST TEE OF GREATER PHILADELPHIA AND GREATER WASHINGTON, DC
Building Game Changers
As a grassroots organization that touches the lives of countless youth across the United States, the First Tee encourages participants to contribute by taking responsibility and actions for their community. The First Tee has shown me how to be a better person by using "The 9 Core Values" in my life on a day to day basis.
As a First Tee participant who has traveled to, and has lived in, various places around the world, I have learned that everyone deserves to be treated with kindness and respect. Through my involvement in the Greater Philadelphia and now in Greater Washington, DC chapters, I have meet different people from diverse backgrounds that I have been able to connect with through our mutual love of golf. The First Tee is not just about improving my skills to become a better golfer, the program has helped me develop confidence within myself, to always be honest and to live my life with integrity.
