About Us

The First Tee of Metropolitan New York created the Path to College program to provide participants of The First Tee with the critical tools and skills they need to prepare for college.

Through educational seminars, workshops, college visits, and one-on-one tutorials, the objective is to provide every participant and their parents with the access and information they need to successfully navigate both the college application process and life after college.

The Path to College program works with youth from 2nd grade until they graduate from high school. While younger participants benefit from academic tutoring and educational support, older participants receive guidance from adult mentors and are provided with opportunities to actively engage in college planning activities throughout their participation in The First Tee.
