Impact Stories

Read about how First Tee Triangle has transformed the lives of participants like Carter and our Wake Young Women’s Leadership Academy ladies.

  • Carter – “I love First Tee because it has made me better at golf and more confident. I’ve made great friends and learned awesome values from my teachers. I joined in middle school and can’t wait to keep going thanks to your support!”
  • Amaya – “Initially, many girls saw golf as a weakness because they had little to no experience. First Tee — Triangle has helped them become great golfers while also building their character. Now, golf is no longer a weakness at Wake Young Women’s Leadership Academy.”
