ABOUT THE PROGRAMS
Building on last year’s success, The First Tee of Metropolitan New York offered an 8-week summer academic and golf program that provided participants with a fun and immersive way to study golf through the perspective of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). Our summer academic programs were created with intentional connections to National Common Core Standards, as well as 21st century skills of communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity.
The current demand of STEM jobs in America greatly outweighs the supply of capable workers, and it is up to our generation of teachers and students to close that gap.
This year, for the first time, we also offered our TFT Summer Literacy Program, to combat the infamous “Summer Slide,” when children’s reading scores tend to decline by several points, due to two months off from school.
Develop a repertoire of strategies for reading, writing, and retrieving information.
Learn through a variety of contexts.
Compose pieces through writing and speaking.
Enhance excitement for reading, writing, and learning.
