Our passion fuels our mission to positively impact the lives of young people by building character, instilling life-enhancing values, and promoting healthy choices through the game of golf.

The Ambassadors are an all-volunteer Affiliate Board of the First Tee of Greater Chicago. Comprised of civic minded Chicago area men and women, Ambassador members mobilize their talents, resources, and networks to provide life-changing experiences for area youth through event-based fundraising activities and volunteering at programs.  Ambassador members enjoy a camaraderie that results in life-long friendships helping to sustain the organization’s legacy and future commitment to strengthening the Chicago area community and building awareness of the First Tee.  

Members come from diverse professional backgrounds and are respected community leaders. Members gain valuable leadership and management skills, as well as, network with philanthropic professionals in the Greater Chicago business and golf communities.  Members are asked to make an annual $1,000 give/get commitment to the organization.  Most member’s volunteer additional time and financial resources to support the organization’s other events, projects, and programs. 

To become a member one is asked to complete a season long initiation process which results in recognition at our new member induction ceremony at our annual kickoff event.  Friends of The Ambassadors are always welcomed to join us at all our open events and will be invited to all the volunteer opportunities within the First Tee.
