The First Tee of Silicon Valley is proud of the impact it’s having in the lives of so many young people. Our positive youth development programs work. The young people we mentor behave better, get better grades, and are healthier than their peers. Our participants demonstrate clear signs that they are acquiring the life skills we teach. For example, all participants know to shake hands while looking others in the eye and to respect themselves, others and their surroundings. Our participants also report good study habits and grades. For example, over 85% of our participants earned all A’s or B’s in school in 2013-2014. The youth we serve are increasingly becoming the high quality young adults we know will succeed in life.
The First Tee of Silicon Valley delivers youth development programs in the form of outreach (in & after school) and certifying classes (at area golf courses). While we impacted the lives of over 8,000 young people in 2014, we experience an even greater demand for our programs. Our goal is to impact the lives of over 24,000 young people annually, and over 150,000 total (since 2005) by 2020.
Keeping records of our participants’ ethnicity is important to the Home Office of The First Tee and it is a point of interest for our donors, as well. Below, is a chart detailing the annual ethnic breakdown of our certifying participants and our outreach participants.
