History: In 1999, the First Tee of Atlanta began to build its legacy of teaching life and leadership skills to inner-city youth through the game of golf. In August 2019, the organization joined forces with the First Tee of East Lake to become a youth development organization serving eight metropolitan counties.

Programs are affordable and scholarships are available.

Motto: Building Game Changers.

How You Can Help: Become an assistant coach, volunteer as a mentor, work on fundraising or special projects. All volunteers are required to complete an application, background check and SafeSport training. Tax-deductible donations are also welcome.
