Volunteering with The First Tee

OUR PHILOSOPHY

 

Without caring mentors, positive youth development just doesn’t happen. At The First Tee, we take coaching seriously. We believe that a meaningful, quality relationship between coach and participant is vital to our program.

 

ARE YOU UP FOR THE CHALLENGE?

 

You don’t have to be a golf pro or even a good golfer. With The First Tee Coach Program, we provide the training you need.

 

Developed with input from leading experts in the field of positive youth development, our program focuses on empowering participants through decision-making and exploring options. This helps foster positive relationships between coaches and young people, inspiring the golfers of tomorrow to look to the future, set goals, and unlock their potential.

 

You must complete an application and screening process, which may include an interview about your skills and interests, a criminal background check, and character references. You will also receive training about your volunteering role, behavioral expectations, and child protection.
