The First Tee of Silicon Valley assesses its impact on the youth of our community on an ongoing and annual basis. This year we brought the game of golf and our Life Skills Curriculum to more youth on and off the golf course than ever before. The young faces of returning participants from last year and the new faces of participants from earlier in the year became quite familiar. The year was also full of great achievements by our upper level participants who have addressed the U.S. Congress, interviewed with the Golf Channel, been featured as a Comcast Sports Net story, won scholarships, and played golf with some of the game’s greatest legends. These impressive stories convey only part of the success of our program. Just a few statistics about The First Tee of Silicon Valley in 2014 are below to give an understanding of the full scope of our impact.
