“We are so grateful for First Tee. I really don’t know what I would have done without support throughout the divorce and caretaking of my parents- I always knew Viv was safe, happy, learning, and supported. Thank you so much.”– Sarah Guite, Parent
“The First Tee – Naples/Collier offers Collier County students an opportunity to experience a life-long sport, while learning core values, important life lessons and healthy habits during the all-important out-of-school hours. First Tee has collaborated with over 30 Collier County schools and their outreach in Immokalee has been excellent. The new First Tee Learning Center in Golden Gate will be a game changer for the schools in Golden Gate, East Naples, and Manatee.”– Dr. Kamela Patton, Superintendent of Collier County Public Schools
“Immokalee HS students have an opportunity to learn an individualized game while at the same time build leadership qualities. With the First Tee Character Building Program, our students are learning how to have self-confidence, build resilience and persevere while playing the game of golf. The exposure to the game of golf is the hook. The personal growth is the valuable lesson for our students.”– Clara Calderon, E.D.S. Immokalee High School, Principal
