TARGET Outreach is designed as an introduction to The First Tee Life Skills ExperienceTM. It was developed to introduce young people to golf in a safe environment that promotes curiosity about the game while integrating essential links between golf and life skills seamlessly. These early, positive experiences may help young people develop an immediate interest in opportunities available at The First Tee, as well as a life-long interest in the game of golf.
TARGET serves as a great tool to take the program to youth at schools – during school hours or after school at school programs, to youth service agencies such as Boys & Girls Clubs and YMCAs, and to city and county parks.
Chapters conduct TARGET Outreach as it markets their brand and program to potential young people who may not be exposed to the game and The First Tee. TARGET paired with the SNAG equipment is a great package to take The First Tee program to youth wherever they may congregate. The key is to create an invitation in creative ways for participants in the “Try It” lesson, so they are encouraged to transition to the next step opportunities at the chapter.
