Anderson Children's Foundation

Coachella Valley Youth Foundation

First Tee- PSUSD School Program (2022-2023)

Established in 2008 and part of 150 First Tee programs nationwide and internationally, First Tee – Coachella Valley has already ignited the spark for golf in hundreds of local youngsters. We are a program of Coachella Valley Youth Golf Foundation, a 501 ( c ) (3) nonprofit organization, located at The Golf Center in Palm Desert.

FTCV has in-school and after-school golf programs across the valley in all Desert Sands Unified elementary schools, six Palm Springs Unified School Districts and six green grass golf facilities with 9-Week Programs in Palm Desert, Palm Springs, and Indio impacting some 11,217 children. After school programs, operated by Desert Recreation District team members, currently have 13 active sites reaching 2,400 children.

Golf is a part of the fabric of Coachella Valley’s lifestyle, and we believe all local children should experience the life skills and core values inherent in the game and to have the opportunity whether they have access to a golf course.

Our purpose is to enable kids to build the strength of character that empowers them through a lifetime of new challenges. By teaching kids First Tee’s Nine Core Values, we aim to put them on course to a healthy, active lifestyle. No child is turned away because of financial circumstances.
