A Letter From Our Executive Director
Greetings Embrace Your Dreams Family and Friends,
We are proud to announce the creation of the Embrace Your Dreams Game Changers Fund, an annual campaign to support and promote The First Tee Lehigh Valley and NJTL programs of Embrace Your Dreams. The goal of the Embrace Your Dreams Game Changers Fund is to provide our participants and coaches with a truly transformative experience that is reflective of having a positive impact on their lives, families, and in their communities leading to extraordinary opportunities that they would never thought possible.
Each year, nearly 500 youth (ages 8 -18) in the Lehigh Valley participate in our programs that integrate core values and life skills with golf and tennis instruction to help children build self-esteem, develop self-discipline, and gain a sense of individual achievement. Our programs celebrate diversity and provide our kids with positive role models and lasting relationships. Children and youth learn sports they can play a lifetime and life skills they can use forever! Many of our past participants go on to do their community service with our programs, then often serve as instructors passing on their knowledge and skills as a positive role model. Many continue their sport onto their high school or college teams.
Your gift to the Embrace Your Dreams Game Changers Fund will have a lasting impact on our youth of the Lehigh Valley. We rely on your support as we expand our resources and capabilities of empowering youth through physical skills, life skills, and core values learned through the game of golf and tennis.
Please join our efforts to continue to provide our participants with a truly transformative experience by making a gift to the Embrace Your Dreams Game Changers Fund.
Why We Do It
An independent research study confirmed that youth involved in The First Tee and NJTL Skills Experience learn and use life skills on the golf course and tennis
court and transfer these skills to other areas of their life. In fact, 100% of the participants interviewed said they transferred life skills such as decision-making, setting goals and managing emotions from the golf course and tennis court into the classroom, as well as other areas of their lives including situations with friends, family, after school activities and jobs.
Embrace Your Dreams is very appreciative of the great support that we continue to receive, but there is still much to be accomplished. If you wish to support the continued success of the program, and would like to make a donation, please call 610-868-5290.
Donations may also be mailed to: Embrace Your Dreams, 424 Center Street, Room 300, Bethlehem, PA 18018,
