First Tee does so much more than just teach golf. This year, even with the pandemic, we were able to safely offer classes to thousands of kids including providing jobs for nearly 100 high schoolers. Our programs provided an outlet and a place where participants could experience a sense of normalcy. We were able to truly make a difference this year thanks to your generous donations!

We would like to share our vision/mission with guests who we can build relationships with long-term. Our goal is for people to help in a variety of ways, such as; volunteering, becoming a committee member, and helping us to develop new partnerships with other nonprofits and businesses.
What People Have To Say About First Tee
“In my life, responsibility is my doorway to building strong, life-long relationships. I believe it will guide me towards who I want to become & help me succeed in life. I hope to one day be a role model & help others build the skills that the First Tee teaches through the nine core values.” – Jason, 13 years old
“I made so many memories, and I now have so many stories to tell. We have so many kids in our program who are so diverse. Not only in skin or hair color, but also with their mindset and how they perceive life. I realized this was so much more than a summer job.” – Aliza, 15 years old
“The First Tee had taught me that everyone faces hardship but more importantly, how one responds to hardship defines who they are as a person.” – Colin, 17 years old
“We are always looking to grow and improve the impact we are having on the children in our communities. We have proven to ourselves, and hopefully to you all as well, that we can have big dreams and we can achieve them. Our next goals are going to be even bigger and challenge us further. From here, we are going to try to bring our programs to every child in our service area, with a special emphasis on those that are overlooked: kids with disabilities, kids that are homeless, kids outside of traditional education institutions, and those that have fallen through the cracks.
For those of you who believed in us from the very beginning – from the bottom of my heart – thank you. Thank you for being a part of the First Tee Family. You are key to everything we have been able to accomplish and the lives we have been able to change.” – Paula Purifoy, C.E.O. First Tee Denver, Front Range and Colorado Rocky Mountains
