Become a Coach or Volunteer & Make a Difference

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.

“Young people don’t care what a coach

knows until they know a coach cares.”

We’re Looking for You!

Nationwide, we currently have more than 3,900 coaches signed up with The First Tee, including PGA and LPGA pros, as well as volunteers. But 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.

Make an Impact Off the Course

We need more than coaches to make The First Tee possible. We rely on volunteers — sometimes year round — to accomplish our mission, and not all of those goals involve golf; we need support off the course as well. Opportunities include:

  • Fundraising/Events
  • Operations/Administration
  • Mentoring/Tutoring
  • In-school programming

By contributing your time and talent, you can directly make an impact in a young person’s life.

Why volunteer?

To promote an organization that impacts the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instills life-enhancing values and promotes healthy choices through the game of golf.  The ideal volunteer candidate is enthusiastic, energetic and passionate about the work that they do for the benefit of the participants and the organization.
