The First Tee is an international 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.
The First Tee uses golf to teach youth life lessons and leadership skills. Sessions include a fun, group setting for youth ages 7 to 18 regardless of background or previous experience. Teaming up with experts in positive youth development, The First Tee helps youth become good golfers and even better people.
The First Tee of Greater Austin relies heavily on volunteer support to make our programs successful. We offer programs for our participants year-round and have a wide range of opportunities to get involved. Most of our golf volunteer positions do not require golf experience. We provide the necessary training and support and our programs take place at 7 sites – located in all parts of Austin. With your help, we can maximize The First Tee Life Skills Experience for more area youth!
