First Tee CV School Golf Programs (2023-2024)

Funds from the Anderson Children’s Foundation will help support First Tee – Coachella Valley’s in-school and after-school golf programs across the valley in Desert Sands and Palm Springs Unified elementary schools. We also operate six green grass golf facilities with 9-Week Programs in Palm Desert, Palm Springs, and Indio impacting some 12,945 children. After school programs, operated by Desert Recreation District team members, currently have 13 active sites reaching 2,400 children. Golf is a part of the fabric of Coachella Valley’s lifestyle, and we believe all local children should experience the life skills and core values inherent in the game and to have the opportunity whether they have access to a golf course. Our purpose is to enable kids to build the strength of character that empowers them through a lifetime of new challenges. By teaching kids First Tee’s Nine Core Values, we aim to put them on course to a healthy, active lifestyle. No child is turned away because of financial circumstances.
