Participant Opportunities

Thanks to corporate partners and generous donors, The First Tee is able to offer a variety of educational and leadership opportunities for participants each year. These events often become life-changing experiences for our participants as they further develop an awareness of possibilities that surround them.

Most opportunities use an application and committee review process to select participants who will benefit the most from each opportunity.  Except for A/B Honor Roll, participants must be high school age to apply and in some cases, a specific age or grade is required.
