The mission statement of The First Tee Lehigh Valley Serving Berks is to impact the lives of young people of diverse backgrounds by providing life skills education as part of golf instruction that promotes positive values, physical skills and sportsmanship. Our vision is to teach The First Tee Nine Core Values™; providing the vehicle through which kids can accomplish their dreams, thrive socially, excel academically and athletically, and become productive members of society with integrity, strong family values and commitment to community.
