Director of Development : The First Tee of Fort Worth
Chapter Overview
The First Tee of Fort Worth is one Chapter of a
national/international non:profit youth initiative called The First Tee. The First Tee was created in 1997 by the World Golf Foundation to provide young people of all ethnic and economic backgrounds an opportunity to develop, through golf and character education, life:enhancing values such as honesty, integrity and sportsmanship. By engaging young people in a combination of life skills, leadership and golf activities, they also are exposed to positive traits that will help them achieve success in life. In the process, participants become valuable assets to their community. The First Tee Life Skills and Golf Experience is the unique component that sets The First Tee apart from many other successful youth development initiatives.
The First Tee of Fort Worth is highly regarded in The First Tee Network as one of the leading chapters. The chapters home is the beautiful Ben Hogan Learning Center and Practice Facility at Rockwood Golf Course. The capital campaign to build the facility was a 2,500,000 project and was completed in 2011. A unique program location is also under construction at a local elementary school property with the support of local foundations and the Fort Worth Independent School District. The program annually reaches over 30,000 children in Fort Worth and the surrounding areas through our various program initiatives, operating at 5 golf facilities and over 200 outreach locations. The board recently completed a Five:Year Strategic Plan in 2016 that sets the vision for the chapter through 2020 with key strategic cornerstones of program accessibility and financial security.
