WHAT WE DO
Spend time with our youth and serve as mentors or program volunteers. This allows us to keep our instructional costs down and gives our participants the opportunity to interact with successful young professionals in the area.
Social, networking and fundraising events will drive the success of both First Tee – Greater Wilmington and the Young Professionals Board. The group meets every quarter with ongoing opportunities to get involved that fit the young professional’s schedule.
Our success depends largely on the number of people that we are able to attract to our program. We hope that you will serve as advocates for us and encourage others to join. We also depend on our young members to engage on social media to widen our reach to the Greater Wilmington community.
Each year the committee executes a fundraising event at the end of the golf season. Members are also encouraged to reach out to their employers, as many have matching gift programs. All donations are 100% tax deductible.
