Junior Advisory Committee

The Junior Advisory Committee (JAC) consists of First Tee – Fort Worth teen participants with a passion for the program! This group of young people serves as advocates for the participants in the program and provide feedback on experiences as well as plan several of our annual events like the Leadership Awards ceremony and First Teens outings!

Applications to JAC are on a rolling schedule and accept applicants year-round. Potential new members will first be evaluated based on their submitted application before receiving an invite to the next JAC meeting.

What We Do

First Teens

As our participants get older, we know they get busier and sometimes its hard to get together! That’s why the JAC came up with First Teens! First Teens events create a fun and friendly environment for teens of First Tee – Fort Worth to come together! Outings aren’t always centered around golf and include activities like bowling, game nights, theme parks, and more! We’re always looking for cool ideas for the next event – feel free to provide your suggestions here!

Program Advocates

Members of the JAC serve to provide valuable feedback to our team about classes, camps, programs, and other aspects of First Tee – Fort Worth! We know that kids and teens often communicate better with other kids and teens, so JAC members serve as great representatives for our participants across the chapter!
