BECOME A VOLUNTEER AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE
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.
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP
Our organization depends on volunteer power to impact as many young lives as possible. We have programs for youth aged 7-18 at eight different golf courses throughout the summer who need your help. No golf experience is required, we will provide the training you need! You just need an enthusiasm for helping kids find their potential. By contributing your time and talent, you can directly make an impact in a young person’s life.
WHERE WE NEED YOUR HELP
ON THE COURSE: Volunteer Coaches
OFF THE COURSE: Fundraising/Events, Operations/Administration, Mentoring/Tutoring, In-school programming
Our coaches are a team of adults that teach young people core values, healthy habits and valuable life skills using the game of golf. You can volunteer at any of our convenient locations across the Chapter. We offer informative and interactive training sessions on a regular basis and there will be continual learning opportunities throughout the season from chapter staff.

Words from our current volunteers:
“I have been a First Tee volunteer for 3 yrs. I chose to volunteer because I wanted to be able to introduce kids to the game of golf. The kids have the opportunity to get outside away from their mobile device and learn a game they can play their entire lives. I really love when they hit that great shot that creates enthusiasm that they may not have had before. My motto is- the most important shot in golf is your “next” shot.” –Frank Stephenson, Volunteer for Butler County Programs.
“I volunteer to give back to an organization that has given so much to me. It’s a true gift to be a part of every kid’s First Tee journey, just like my coaches were, and still are, a huge part in mine.” Patrick Geshan, Volunteer at Indian Ridge.
