About Us

Welcome to The New Jersey Youth Development Foundation (NJYDF) and The First Tee of Raritan Valley. The First Tee of Raritan Valley mission is to impact the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values, and promote healthy choices through the game of golf. The First Tee of Raritan Valley is currently expanding and developing programs with several new partners to reach more than 60,000 students throughout six counties of New Jersey by 2017. We currently offer program opportunities in Hunterdon, Middlesex, Morris, Somerset, Union, and Warren Counties of New Jersey. The First Tee program allows youth ages 7-17 to participate in the life skills experience, core values, and increase their golf skills. This chapter is operated by the New Jersey Youth Development Foundation.
