First Tee – Roanoke Valley’s primary mission is to provide young people of all backgrounds an opportunity to develop, through golf and character education, life-enhancing values such as honesty, integrity and sportsmanship. Our First Tee program teaches children lessons that lay the foundation needed to meet the many challenges of life. In support of this mission, need-based scholarships have been made available to help introduce the game’s traditions, values, history and science to juniors throughout southwest Virginia.
As a national organization, First Tee offers participants an expanding array of scholarship opportunities – for good students, leaders and/or good golfers. As participants achieve levels of certification, they become eligible to apply for scholarship opportunities. We hope that many participants from First Tee – Roanoke Valley will benefit from these programs.
