Playing Golf, Learning Life Skills

Mr. Sanchez joined the First Tee of Greater Washington, DC as its Executive Director in October 2012 and has been around the game of golf most of his life. He grew up in Gaithersburg, Maryland playing at Montgomery Village Golf Club. In 1998, Clint graduated from Flagler College in St. Augustine, Florida with a degree in Sport Management. He has worked in and around Washington, DC since 2001 and has been working in youth development since 2007. The First Tee was created in 1997 to provide young people of all ethnic and economic backgrounds an opportunity to develop, through golf and character education, life-enhancing values such as honesty, integrity and sportsmanship. By engaging young people in a combination of life skills, leadership and golf activities, they also are exposed to positive traits that will help them achieve success in life.
