Tee Up for Greatness is a program developed by RBS/The First Tee and implemented by The First Tee of Greater Miami Valley to positively impact the lives of middle and high school aged youth through sustained, meaningful relationships with adult mentors. Mentors are a part of a team who helps participants build character and life skills through new opportunities, activity-based learning and exposure to the values inherent in the game of golf. In 2016, Tee Up will serve youth in residence at One Way Farm in Fairfield, OH.
Mentors are the key!
Mentors (Coaches) empower participants (Players) to explore options and make their own decisions, two elements that are critical to the development of a youth’s value system. They inspire Players to respect themselves and others, look into the future, set goals and discover their individual potential.
Here’s how it works:
Each Tee Up lesson plan develops from one of The First Tee’s Nine Core Values. The value is reinforced during activities designed to broaden appreciation for a variety of interests – everything from hobbies to home repairs and finance to fine arts. Each session includes segments for learning golf and practicing relaxation techniques. Leading the fun, a range of community and university volunteers team up, while Coaches encourage Players. There’s always a shared meal – time for one-on-one conversations that strengthen bonds.
