What We Do

We are very thankful for the many blessings we have received over the years and sincerely appreciate your on-going or consideration for support. Today, we serve over 7,000 youth in greater Omaha. This number has doubled in two years.

Unfortunately, as a result of this year's world-wide pandemic, our challenges to impact today's youth have multiplied. Our passion and commitment to "make a difference" in molding tomorrow's leaders is our driving force. As a result, we reviewed and revised our business model so we can continue our efforts. All of us are hopeful we'll be back to normal in the very near future. Here's an overview of our impact to Omaha's next generation.

The First Tee of Omaha is an inclusive youth development program for children ages (5-18) introducing the game of golf and its inherent values to young people. Through after school and in school programs, we help shape the lives of young people from all walks of life by reinforcing values like integrity, respect and perseverance through the game of golf.

We parlay golf and life lessons highlighted by our nine core values: Honesty-Integrity-Respect-Responsibility-Confidence-Courtesy-Judgment-Perseverance-Teamwork.
