New Year, New Opportunities for Building Game Changers

With the New Year, we are excited for new opportunities to keep Building Game Changers in our community.  We help kids build their growth story, and after 15 years, we’re writing a new chapter of ours.  We would like to welcome the kids and families of Butler and Warren counties to our First Tee – GCNKY family!

Who is First Tee – Greater Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky?

Maybe you already know about First Tee through national commercials on TV.  First Tee is a youth development organization who seamlessly integrates the game of golf with an intentional life skills curriculum.  We create learning experiences that build inner strength, self-confidence, and resilience that kids carry to everything they do.  Our chapter currently serves children in Hamilton and Clermont counties in Ohio as well as Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties in Kentucky. We are excited to expand to our neighboring Ohio counties of Butler and Warren in 2021.  Over the 15 year history of our chapter, we've grown to reach nearly 12,000 children annually in over 40 elementary schools, six golf courses, and many community initiatives. We have plans to reach 30,000 kids by 2025. We believe kids become a better version of themselves when they have the space to be who they are, surrounded by passionate people who guide them to see what they are capable of doing.  We were able to provide these opportunities in 2020 through...
  • 100+ Volunteers
  • 646 Kids at 6 Area Golf Courses
  • 41 School Program Partners
  • 500+ Kids in Community Programs
Although 2020 was a year unlike any other, we quickly adjusted to adapt to the needs of the kids in our community.  We provided virtual activities for our kids when they found themselves suddenly at home in the spring.  After much collaboration and extensive planning, we provided a safe environment for kids to resume programming in the summer and fall.  In a time of uncertainty, these kids showed resilience and reinforced our belief that the life skills curriculum we provide, seamlessly with the game of golf, is needed now more than ever.

What's Next?

As we continue to develop relationships in Butler and Warren counties, we want to keep you informed and get people involved now! In 2021 we intend to host Golf Course programs in the summer and are hopeful to extend this to Spring and Fall classes in future years. Whether you are new to First Tee or are already a First Tee participant living in Butler or Warren County, we are sure you have questions. If your child has never participated in a First Tee program, please visit the "New Families" page below. If your child has already participated in First Tee, but not with First Tee – Greater Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky, please visit "First Tee Families Residing in Butler or Warren County" below.
