Since receiving the chapter license in 2002, First Tee - Canton's programs have positively impacted more than 15,000 kids and teens, providing them with experiences that help build their inner strength, self-confidence, and resilience, and prepare them for the future. Using the game of golf as the platform, participants learn critical life skills to help them grow socially, emotionally, and academically.
"First Tee has been an extremely positive experience for my son in so many ways. Not only has he learned how to be a better golfer, even greater in my eyes are the social skills and confidence he has gained," said parent, Jodi Hoover. "From the coaches to the staff and volunteers, everyone has been kind and encouraging. I am so grateful for this organization."
First Tee - Canton is one of 150 chapters across the First Tee network. These character education programs are offered at golf courses, schools, and youth centers in all fifty states and six international locations.
