Mission Statement

First Tee - Pittsburgh's mission: To impact the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.


At First Tee - Pittsburgh we provide programs built on positive youth development. Our Golf and Life Skills Clinics provide the proven elements: safe places, intentional and trained caring adults, and developmentally appropriate and empowering curricula. No child or group is ever turned away for inability to pay. In addition, all equipment is provided, free of charge. Contributions we receive help economically disadvantaged children participate in our golf and life skill clinics. First Tee’s program teaches core values inherent in the game of golf, including confidence, respect, judgment, responsibility, courtesy, honesty, sportsmanship, integrity, and perseverance.

The Pittsburgh chapter is based at The Bob O’Connor Golf Course in Schenley Park. Together with locations in Stowe Township, North Park, South Park, Penn Hills, Butler, Beaver Falls, and Elizabeth, we serve over 1,600 area kids in certifying programs, 3,000 in outreach programs and over 16,000 in our School Program. These young people have fun lessons in putting, chipping, pitching and full swing while they also learn self-management, goal setting and interpersonal communication. Our trained coaches and volunteers maintain a 6:1 ratio so the lessons are activity based and personal. This program creates positive relationships that inspire young people to discover their individual potential.
