What is The First Tee of Greater Kansas City?
The First Tee of Greater Kansas City is a youth development organization teaching young people positive values such as honesty, integrity, sportsmanship and confidence while using the game of golf as a tool. The First Tee of Greater Kansas City helps over 8,000 young people each year to learn valuable Life Skills through a “seamless approach.” Participants learn to communicate better, develop self-awareness, learn to set reachable goals and practice resistance skills while having fun and learning to play golf.
The First Tee lessons are taught at five area learning centers and through in-school programs. National independent research has proven that 78% of our participants are learning and using life skills such as goal-setting, interpersonal communication, self-management and resistance skills. Perhaps, most importantly, many of our participants are receiving college scholarships and employment opportunities because of their involvement with The First Tee. All money raised in Kansas City stays here to help local programs. You can help by contributing or volunteering to The First Tee of Greater Kansas City.
