Become a Coach or Volunteer and Make a Difference

We’re Looking for You!

We currently have more than 3,700 coaches signed up with The First Tee nationwide, including PGA and LPGA pros. But you don’t have to be a golf pro or even a good golfer to begin as a volunteer coach. 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.

To become a volunteer coach, 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 volunteer or coaching role, behavioral expectations, and child protection.

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. 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
  • Board and Advisory Board committee support

As you consider volunteering for our chapter, know that the safety of our kids is our first priority.  Please read our Prevention Policies to see how we conduct programs and activities at our chapter
