Why? The First Tee of Cleveland!

One of the things I love the most about Cleveland is that there are so many great organizations filled with so many great people who are looking to do amazing things. The other week, I got introduced to another one of these organizations when I got a tour of The First Tee of Cleveland.


The First Tee of Cleveland is a chapter of the national The First Tee organization. The program teaches life skills and holistic wellness integrated into the game of golf.


Children enrolled in the program learn everything from integrity and honesty to healthy eating habits. These children participate in a fun activity in a nurturing atmosphere that contributes to positive development.


While I was on my tour, I got to see the start of a class and was so impressed by the students, each of whom came up to shake my hand and introduce themselves.


After seeing that, Jeffrey wanted me to teach him how to shake hands, too! I think he also might have picked up an early love for golf while we were at the beautiful Washington Golf Course where The First Tee’s offices are located.


I was also so impressed by the staff and volunteers at The First Tee, who clearly care so much for their students and are warm and welcoming.

The First Tee offers after-school programs and summer camps for students, as well as a Girls Leadership Academy. There’s also a Summer Scramble golf outing planned by The First Tee Ambassadors Committee on June 27 to benefit this non-profit organization.
