At The First Tee of Greater New Orleans, we serve to positively impact the lives of our local youth by providing structured, educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values, and promote healthy choices – all through the game of golf.
Did you know?
- There are 45 Greater New Orleans schools enrolled in our National School Program, impacting over over 25,000 local elementary students per year!
- Through our Life Skills Experience, we reach over 1,100 youth and teens with our First Tee Nine Core Values and Nine Healthy Habits. Nearly 80% of the students who enroll in our program are qualified for Federal Free and Reduced Lunch, and are able to participate at no cost through donor provided scholarships.
- Our Chapter partners with local youth development organizations, including: NORDC, Trinity Community Christian Church, Son of a Saint, Excite All-Stars, Elevate New Orleans, Southern University New Orleans Healthy Minds & Bodies, Discovery Fest, Dillard University Sports Camp, and The Boys and Girls Club. Through these partnerships, we’re able to introduce students to The First Tee Life Skills Experience.
