Want to make a difference in the lives of young people?
First Tee is a youth development organization that enables kids to build the strength of character that empowers them through a lifetime of new challenges. By seamlessly integrating the game of golf with a life skills curriculum, we create active learning experiences that build inner strength, self-confidence, and resilience that kids can carry to everything they do.
At First Tee – Puerto Rico, we are part of a growing and evolving network that is committed to ensuring we meet the changing needs of kids and families today. We help kids show up stronger in everything they do, and we need your help to do it. There are various ways you can partner with us as we build experiences that will help kids and teens achieve their full potential.
