Mark Your Calendars for #GivingTuesday

Did you know that one in three kids in America will reach adulthood without ever having a mentor? Research shows that kids in the First Tee refer to their coaches as mentors and believe the First Tee coaches care about them, help them set goals, and inspire them to use the skills they learn far beyond golf.  Donations made to the First Tee during this year-end giving campaign, which kicks off on Giving Tuesday, December 1st, help the First Tee teach kids golf and life skills, while providing a safe place for them to receive mentorship from caring adults.
