COVID-19 Response

First Tee – Connecticut 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.

Through programs at 17 outdoor locations, in 162 schools and in partnership with local youth service agencies, we annually help shape the lives of over 71,000 young people from all walks of life by reinforcing values like integrity, respect and perseverance through the game of golf.

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.
