Each year at this time I take a moment and reflect on Thanksgiving. As we ready for the next days with our family and friends, I think of the stories we hear each day or week from young people of The First Tee.
Lives have changed because of coaches and teachers delivering our curriculum. For many young people, their sense of purpose has been altered. They are more confident, focused and determined to succeed and to contribute in ways they had not previously considered.
We are fortunate to have the opportunity to have the support of chapters, colleagues, schools, families and other organizations who bring our vision to life. We are fortunate to have young people across the country displaying what they have learned from The First Tee and who excited about their future. We are thankful for the involvement and support of parents who share our journey to impact the lives of young people.
Thank you for your involvement in The First Tee. We are making a difference.
Happy Thanksgiving to all,
Joe Louis Barrow, Jr.
Chief Executive Officer, The First Tee
