The First Tee of Denver
November 20, 2010

I have been involved with the First Tee of Denver for eight years. I started out as a participant in their 'Girls Night Out' Class then moved up to being a member of the 'Players Club'. I am now a Mentor over the summer and volunteer with the Read N Swing program during the school year. The First Tee of Denver has played a huge role in who I am today and who I hope to be in the future. The program's nine core values are some of my most prized qualities, and are the reason that I continue to succeed in school and other aspects of my life. The organization also helped me develop my future plans of being a teacher. Through personal experience it has become clear to me that the First Tee of Denver truly cares about all of their participants.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The First Tee of Denver came into my life eight years ago. I started out as a member of their summer programs, and then moved up to be a Mentor for the summer programs. The organization has helped to make me a better person. They also gave me my first job. However, the selection process is not easy, they have a rigorous selection process designed to help the participants in real world job searches.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I really would not make any changes to the First Tee of Denver's program, they have a great staff who makes sure everything gets done and that the children are safe at all times. They are an efficient and proactive organization.
