Since 2000, PwC has been a loyal supporter of The First Tee, serving as a Trustee, partner and friend to our youth participants.

With associates, retired partners and staff serving as volunteer board members for chapters of The First Tee, PwC continues its company-wide support through a variety of activities and development opportunities for our junior golfers.

“The First Tee is grateful for the longstanding support of The First Tee nationally and in chapter markets provided by PwC,” said Joe Louis Barrow, Jr., chief executive officer of The First Tee. “Their commitment to our efforts positively impacts young people through educational programs that promote character development, and we are especially appreciative of the more than 200 PwC associates that volunteer their time to interact directly with participants.”

In addition to hosting financial literacy events for participants and their parents at chapters across the country, PwC also selects four of The First Tee Scholars to attend its annual Executive Business Forum during THE PLAYERS Championship in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.

Designed to introduce participants to corporate America, the Executive Business Forum enables the Scholars to interact with corporate leaders and hear from speakers on topics facing American business today.

Several of the attendees have gone on to not only intern at a PwC office, but also secure full-time positions at the company.
